All riders must wear a helmet ($100 fine). Riders should sign in at the upper trailhead prior to riding (this is how the park justifies funding these trails)!

Description

Gold Rush picks up where Gatewood leaves off. The trail flows well and has some jumps that if taken slowly are quite moderate.

There are two short technical spots that you can walk your bike through. Skydive is a steep drop that can be handled with relative ease. The other is the Ledges area that consist of ledgy (surprise) rock formations that can be bypassed with a steep climb to the left.

Most of the uphills are pretty even and relatively comfortable except for one climb near the end that can be a bit vigorous.
