Slippery Eel / Red Tail

Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

Push up the rise and strap in for a screamer. DH/FR rigs only...seriously, DO NOT take your Xc bike, you'll be picking up your teeth by the end if you do. Both trails start at this point, about 400 meters down trail they split. Red Tail to the left, Slippery Eel to the right. The Red tail section is fast and furious, nice berms, tight sections, rock gardens etc... Slippery Eel will test your bike handling skills, tight as a Nun's bun, rocky, rooty and STEEP.

These runs kick @$$. Probably the best around here, at least the best that anyone will tell you about. Still, if your in the area you have gotta hit it

Recommended Route:
Straight down hill
