A tricky technical downhill that will make less advanced riders think twice.

Jeremiah Bradshaw

Description

This is a very technical downhill. It doesn't flow well but has plenty to humble any rider. There are many features on Blackjack that will test the best of technical downhill riders. Most features have a ride around but the ride around isn't the easiest either. All features are doable though (I'm proof).

This section is not for the intermediate/beginner rider.

Rode BlackJack as part of the Epic Loop. This trail is not for me!! SUPER technical and even the "ride arounds" are a challenge.

Awesome. Did all A lines except one. It was rutted out, and unridable. Best trail section I have done!

Major front tire blow out. Very tough and scary technical expert and extreme features.

Dry - Sand sand sand! If you love slogging thru 19 miles of boring sand and washed out gullys this is the trail.

This is definitely a very challenging bit of trail. I don't think the technical/steep/tight sections on this ride have anything comparable in the front range. Jul 20, 2015
