Description

Follow Me is a lengthy double black diamond descent in the classic Mammoth Mountain style. Featuring boulders, loose, sliding dirt, chunks of pumice, and all manner of blown-out gnar, this 2.3-mile descent is guaranteed to get your arms pumped!

While Follow Me is undoubtedly gnarly, the addition of well-built berms—some of which are reinforced with pavers—has prompted some people, such as Jonathan Fennell, to ask, “is this the Flowiest Tech Trail? Is that even possible?"

Since Follow Me starts so high up the mountain, if you can look up from the techy gnar gnar under your tires you’ll enjoy stunning panoramic vistas of the valley below and the mountains all around. Best to pull over and stop while you take in the views, though—a fall on this pumice is guaranteed to shred your flesh!
