An advanced downhill run with big gaps, steep drops, and lots of speed.

Description

Torpedo is for advanced riders only. Intermediate riders might be able to carefully negotiate their way down, but they won't really be 'riding' the trail or its features much. Novices should not even attempt it.

From the top, off of the connector/XC Loop, go left and start the descent. Big berm after big berm allow for relentless speed. There are big jumps, tabletops, and gaps all along.

Just past half-way down, there is a wider section with several line options: on the left side is a big wooden drop. Standing next to it, it's probably about 4' high. But it's on a steep slope, so with any degree of speed you're going to be dropping at least 10'. Alternatively, on the right side is a very steep descent, followed by a very steep step-up....producing a lot of G's near the bottom. Right after the step-up, a turn to the left and another very steep descent! This is where the fun (or pain) happens!

The lower portion consists of more jumps, big rollers, and berms, before finally leveling out and re-joining the XC Loop, and then the gravel access road.
