An awesome shuttle route from the top to the bottom.

Ryan Rediske

Overview

If you have a shuttle ride to the top, this is an easy climb followed by some awesome downhill. The downhill flows well all the way down. The top half is smooth, followed by some rocky sections on the bottom half.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

Catch a shuttle up the gravel road, or pedal if you're feeling adventurous, and then start the climb up a grass covered road. After about 2.6 miles on the grass road, turn off on the left down Bear Pen Trail #176. This is a fast trail with plenty of rocks and mounds to jump off of.

Once you reach the gravel road, turn right and head down to the start of Walker Creek Trail #165. This trail is super fast with plenty of rocky sections. The faster you go, the "smoother" it feels.
