Description

If you've already ridden Race Track and are looking for something different, give Dead Bird a try. It has a few steep sections but is tamer than Lost.

Dead Bird connects to the road for a bail-out point or continue down until the trail connects to the lower section of Lost.

Some bikers with super human powers do climb Dead Bird from time to time so be on the look-out. The trail also gets some equestrian traffic.

Watch for rutted out sections of trail.
