Description

Overlook Salt Lake City, Bobsled is a technical downhill trail that gets the heart racing through fast corners, and loose technical terrain.

Right out of the start, Bobsled throws you into tight singletrack with loose, rocky and rooty terrain. The beginning of Bobsled is definitely the most technical, with plenty of opportunities to send it over the bars if you're not paying close attention.

After a break in the trees, the trail opens up into flowy banked corners, begging you to go faster and faster. With many options along the way, there's always a chance to mix it up and keep the trail fresh. Keep your eye open though, as a slight misjudgment might have you wrapped around a tree through one of the corners.

Coming into the third portion of the trail, you'll find many big features, including jumps over rusted out cars and creek beds, and drops that come in from the sides of the trail. With ride around options for all features, Bobsled still provides practice for beginners with their cornering and drifting technique.

Got to Bobsled via Dry Gulch. Ton of fun trail. Wish there was a easy way to session it though. No water on the trail when we rode it. 6.9mi — 1h 30m

Jump an old beater...and if you miss, there is a hospital at the end of the trail that can set you up with a tetanus shot.
