Shotgun is a great way to end your ride or to throw in some spice before a lunch run at Mammoth Mountain. Peeling directly off of Downtown Trail
, Shotgun starts with a short climb to a nice open area with slight views of the mountain. From here, prepare for a thrilling DH run.
Right off the bat, Shotgun goes off with a bang. It throws nice, tight rock garden-laden switchbacks your way, all the while allowing you to keep your speed and momentum. From there, the trail has a few jumps (all rollable) and a large wall ride.
After some wide, swooping berms that have been made sustainable with the use of concrete lattice, the trail trends very straight and fast. Keep your eyes peeled for some optional jumping rocks, or just put your head down and blast to the finish.
To cap the trail off, you'll encounter a large berm that spits you onto a fun booter; the perfect way to end a Shotgun wedding between trail and bike.
