Description

Hammer Down is a burly jump line that crisscrosses the Ozone Trail, thanks to an elevated wooden bridge. Hammer Down is easy to access from a nearby parking lot, making it a popular jump line for locals looking to score some airtime after work. Recently built in 2020, this trail showcases the expertise of Northwest Arkansas's premier professional trail builders.

This jump line offers a slew of large features and is intended for-advanced level riders. The line begins with a big drop and follows it up with several large tabletops, step-ups, and more.

The short lap shown here accesses Hammer Down from the nearby parking lot, descends the jump line, and returns to the top via Ozone. You can easily pedal multiple loops on Hammer Down and Ozone or connect into the greater Slaughter Pen Trail System for many more miles of shredding.
