This intermediate trail is moderately technical with a few more technical challenges. Bypasses are provided and all technical trail features can be rolled. This is a fast whoops-y downhill ride with jumps and berms.
In order to access this trail, you can ride from the Upper Igo Trailhead (this is the preferred direction if you want a net descent on your return). Ride up Lower Hot Shot Trail #725 to Intersection 2: MERA Loop Trail #724
; MERA Loop Trail runs clockwise, so to get to Whoopsy Doo Trail #745 turn right and enjoy the flowing descent!
Whoopsy Doo Trail ends at Intersection 9 with the MERA Loop Trail—turn right to return to Upper Igo Trailhead or Owsley Canyon Trailhead. If returning to Upper Igo Trailhead, turn left on Skills Trail Giant Slalom and enjoy a bermy, jumpy, rolly descent to Upper Igo Trailhead. If returning to Owsley Canyon Trailhead, stay on the MERA Loop for about two miles of short ups and downs. From Owsley Canyon Trailhead, take Red Apple Trail 700 to MERA Loop Trail #724
at Intersection 1 and continue on to Whoopsy Doo Trail.
