Need to Know

Don't do it till you feel it! Start small and work your way up, this is an area to build your skills.

Description

The map only shows the main drop line that leads through first a 12" easy drop and then the choice of a 12", 24" or 36" drop. All of the drops have down slope landings and are 24" wide and sturdy.

There is also a rock line with a big rock roll-over at the bottom that can also serve as a return to the top.

On lower Giddy-Up Trail, there are now berms and jumps to practice those skills and just have fun.

Look for the 80'+ skinny made from a fallen oak tree between Giddy Up and Drop Zone.
