A loose and steep singletrack with plenty of rowdy sections to keep you on your toes.

Overview

Dogs: Off-leash

Description

An old moto trail turned rowdy DH, this trail requires riders to be prepared for fast, steep, and loose descending. If the views don't win you over on this trail, maybe its rowdy nature will...

From a four-way intersection with Trail #843A and Road #287B, this route brings you along a very steep ridgetop with expansive views. Eventually, and after a few technical challenges, the trail switchbacks left (north) into the trees. From here, it descends moto-cut switches to an intersection with Connector.

About as steep as it gets without hitting open freeride zones. Sharp flat corners force you keeps speeds in check. Too bad it's not 4 times as long.

Trail is in good shape, not closed per USFS. They haven't been in there in over a year. Someone is in there "maintaining" the trail by putting in cheater rocks, etc. LHOHV is tough, steep, unforgiving and that's why we've been riding there for 20 years. If you want BMA, pavers and easy lines, there's plenty of other places to ride. Oct 26, 2017
