Summary:
This place is an odditiy in MTB. There are no real trails, just a bunch of extreme downhills, drops and semi-packed sand. The downhills are steep, full of soft sand and extremely hard to get to. I imagine this place would be awesome if it were a bit more groomed and hard packed. In my opinion this is a place you have to ride once, but after that I can see it getting old quite quickly. I rode it on a saturday morning and didn't see a soul until two huge dumptrucks came hauling into the pit. They seemed interested in watching us bust our asses on the hills, but didn't seem to mind that we were there (we did stay way out of their way,and out of shouting distance) This place requires a biker that is determined to ride extreme stuff, because you have to really want to go to push through all of the brush and crap to get to the downhills. If you can do that, bring a helmet, a life insurance policy, kiss all of your loved ones, and let it all hang out...

Summary:
I've been riding at this place for over five years and the only other people who ride here are 3 of my friends.This place is kick a$$ if your into riding super steeps and going off drops onto super steeps this is the place.There is so much you can do here you'll never do everything.Because it's always changin.
If your into trails riding this place would give you a hard on.I can't even begin to explain.Best bet is to play on everthing you see and work your way across the pit because the further you go into the pit the more you'll want to ride.Avoid this place during the middle of the day in summer,you will die.Go late in the day or early morning.Winter is the best time to ride.make sure you have tools,tubes and plenty of water,and a helment would be nice to if you want to get crazy.

If you want to have some real fun and get hooked on this come on a night ride on a full moon. It's so bright you don't need a light. Not even on the super steeps which happen to be 70+ft high and steep enough to scare the $h!t out of you.
