Description

Out of Gas is enjoyable in both directions, but for extra suffer points start it from the bottom of Main Street. The first quarter mile is pleasant rolling singletrack. At the intersection with Lower Backside, be prepared for a spicy entrance feature. Large boulders with deep ruts on steep grade guard the entrance to the remainder of the trail. It's highly recommended that you stop and pick out your line if this is your first go around.

Once you've either a) successfully ridden your line, b) crashed in a glorious attempt of honor or c) played it smart and walked this section, continue on rolling singletrack until you begin your climb out of the gully.

The last quarter of a mile will continuously become steeper until, as the trail name suggests, you are out of gas. The last 300 feet are notoriously loose. Remain calm when you spin out multiple times.

Heading 'northish' it's as if the builder drunkenly wandered up and down the hillside before remembering to head up to main street.
