One Way Only: This is designated as a directional trail.

Description

Black Sheep is a very unique ride. It's chunky, DH-only track with ample alternate lines throughout. This speaks to the amount of variety crammed into the line. The trail is fully rideable, but certain segments are still being added and revamped, so ride it with a head on your shoulders.

Black Sheep begins with a gap jump into a slight traverse along an exposed cliff edge. Follow the cliff edge around a corner where the rider takes a sharp right turn into a 4 ft armored drop. At the base of the drop riders navigate between a tree and rock into another small gapped jump. Pick an easy gear because the next two obstacles are short, rocky climbs with moderate exposure. From there, you'll find 2 tricky rock features as you traverse the cliff-edge.

As you round the corner, stay right to descend through a lengthy rock garden, or take the steep rocks to the left to end up on a rock slab with a ~2 ft. drop off the end. When the two options merge, there's a fun skinny to ride, followed by a series of alternating rock sections and steep berms. These will eventually put you in a silty chute that spits you out onto Lori Cohen Connector. Turn right here to climb up and repeat the experience!
