Rain or shine I believe One Way Only: This is designated as a directional trail.

Overview

Ride this trail if you want to experience high-speed jumps, berms and drops along with a lot of technical rocky gnar.

Need to Know

Get your daily pass at the general store at the base of the mountain before you park.

Description

Freeride starts you out with 4 big jumps one of which is a 50+ degree wooden ramp. It is a gap. You need to let off the brakes and just flow it at full speed to clear the jumps.

Then you go through a series of high-speed berms and rocky terrain. Get ready for more tabletops throughout the downhill as well as drops and a wooden bridge that you can jump off of or even clear the entire thing if you are really good.

In the finale there are a couple of doubles that some treat as a double triple followed by a massive rock drop into a massive high-speed step-up. The rock drop has a ride around as does the final 2 features, the Red Bull drop and the Step-up.

The Red Bull drop is extremely high-speed and tall and long. You need lots of speed so do not hit the brakes. The step-up is perfect at trail speed just don't hit the brakes. Just relax, stay neutral and let it float you to the landing up top.

History & Background

I believe there was some mining as the excavating to make way for these trails has unearthed a ton of glass. Be careful at the top as punctured tires is very common.
