Description

Jackalope's is one of the more difficult trails at EMO. Though several sections have been re-aligned from its original location, there are tight and twisty turns and steep switchbacks. This trail is also technical in that the tread is rooty in many of the steeper sections.

This trail is located in the Buckeye Creek drainage and crosses water on small bridges in several spots. There is one nice waterfall called "Zig Zag Falls" in the middle of the loop.

Though there are difficult punchy climbs in either direction, some riders may prefer to ride this trail from the Northview end. Riding that direction has one very steep climb that even has a sign called "Grunt Hill."
