A fun and flowy descent from McCoy Station that links with many other trails in the bike park.

Alan Jacoby

Overview

This trail is part of the Mammoth Mountain Bike Park, so a pass is required while the bike park is open.

Description

This is one of the more popular trails in the Mammoth Mountain Bike Park. Although people usually access it by getting off the gondola at McCoy Station (mid-chalet), and riding down (as this gpx/map describes), it's open for uphill traffic and can be accessed at it's terminus with Uptown Trail and as part of the Mammoth Lakes Big Friggin Loop. Climbing it isn't for the faint of lungs. There are some steep sections with techy rocky spots. Descending it offers a great variety of buff singletrack to rock gardens and sharp switchbacks - nothing too tough for an intermediate rider. Enjoy.

Dry - trail in great shape, alittle loose up near the start, but overall pretty good

Getting forecast...

There are long sections with loose pumice and neverending rock gardens, so I rate this a bit above Intermediate. There are also some very big roots. It's no surprise that Brake Through connects to so many black diamonds. This is still a very fun trail, but customize your technique based on your level (I have to walk some sections). Sep 4, 2015
