“Expert jump trail chock full of features.”
— Eric Ashley
Galbraith Mountain is privately owned but trails are created and maintained by WMBC. Galbraith is open to non-motorized users except for hunting and fishing. The area is an ongoing site for logging operations so visitors should be on the lookout for temporary trail closures. Trails are multi-use; expect traffic in both directions and yield to hikers and equestrian users.
Grasshopper is on its third reincarnation due to logging. With so many lives, this expert trail has seen many changes and the current life is no exception. Grasshopper is currently under the tutelage of Manual Mike at manualmike.com.
Over the winter of 2015 and into 2016 a whole new top and lower section of Grasshopper was opened with loads of extra gaps. The trail packs some of the biggest and most consistent hits at Galbraith and is chock full of large jumps, gaps, step-downs, ladders, drops, and the Alexis Step-up.
This is a scout before you send-it type of trail. Especially the "Big and Floaty" gap near the end.
