Description

Located near the base of Mammoth Mountain, Shotgun often forms the end to many top-to-bottom runs through the bike park.

This black diamond trail features several big wooden features, including a formidable wall ride. Some sections of this trail traverse classic bench cut singletrack filled with small rock gardens, roots, and other obstacles. Most of the corners are bermed, with pavers reinforcing the berms so they hold up to the constant abuse on this oft-ridden trail.

Lower down, Shotgun gets steeper and more direct, dropping straight down the fall line through a series of high-speed eroded rock gardens

While you might think this will be a chill wrap up to your run, stay on your game because Shotgun doesn’t pull its punches!
