Big Trees Map

Looking for rollers, jumps mixed with a little bit of technical riding? "Big Trees" starts like that straight away with multiple rollers ending with small/medium sized jumps. There is a set of 4 of these rhythm sections and then the trails become more rocky and technical mixing in berms to switch back and forth with the contour of the mountain. You will come across every type of mountain bike trail on "Big Trees"; jumps, rollers, gravel, loose dirt, roots and tight berms. At the end, you will merge onto "Tryumph" for a few hundred foot but then you will have the choice to "Frolick", "Manure Pile" or "The Woods".
