Description

This isn’t the mountain biking trail your dad rode. Lucky 13 is today’s true Black Diamond downhill mountain biking at its best!

Once you crank out a steady tempo up the very forgiving approach ascent,l the climb tops out. As you dip your bike’s front wheel onto the beginning of the black diamond descent, it’s boom, boom, boom! Non-stop action with big berms, big gap jumps, big step ups, and offsetting drops—an entire feature-laden downhill obstacle course.

With the biggest and baddest of the features located in the steepest section of the run, both spectators and bikers usually congregate alongside the trail to watch and cheer on the acrobatics being performed.

Many riders spend their entire day with repeats on this short stretch of multiple, BIG jumps. No sense doing the whole run if you came for some air time.

Difficulty

Extreme

Very steep, difficult, narrow singletrack with widely variable and unpredictable trail conditions. Unavoidable obstacles could be 15in/38cm tall or greater, and unavoidable obstacles with serious consequences are likely to be present. Obstacles could include big rocks, difficult root sections, drops, jumps, sharp switchbacks, and more. Ideal for expert-level riders.
