Description

aka: "Bobcat"

This trail is gnarly. Good downhillers should be able to shred this hill without stepping off, but not me. Me and my hardtail just can't get down two sections of rock face. They're only a few yards of trail, but chunky? Holy cow.

The terrain is parched and rocky, with very little vegetation. The trail surface between rock outcroppings is unpredictable and loose.

Technical and fun. Best technical DH in Santiago Oaks. Experienced riders will love it! If you need double diamond try Old Goat / Waterfall.
