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."

Trail needs some severe maintenance, maybe it was just the time of year my wife and I were riding. The trail was very poorly maintained. The pump/skills track berms were weathered and washed away along with the obstacles. A lot of the banks in and switchbacks throughout the trail consisted of the same lack of maintenance as the skills section. However if you are up for a challenge you will definitely find it here, but beware this trail is far from being fast, flowy, and fun...as of May 08, 2018. Have a good quality full suspension bike, I did it on a Giant Trance. May 8, 2018
