Short but sweet downhill single track. This is the downhill course for the Keysville downhill race. It begins really fast then comes to a few technical sections then smooths out. The end it widens out and there is a sweet jump at the lip of the last hill as you come down into the parking area. It is best when done as a loop. For a short trail is loads of fun. If you are riding in the area...check it out.

This trail one of the best in the area. Its very fast. The entire loop only takes a half hour or so. The downhill only take 4 to 10 minutes.

I prefer this trail after rain. The decomposed granite gets real soft when its been dry.

Recommended Route:
The loop
