Twilight Zone Map

The name of the game on Twilight Zone is “pavers.” A veritable highway of paving stones holds the soil together for this double black diamond rip down the mountainside. In places, the pavers have been shaped into tabletop jumps and berms reminiscent of an urban paved pumptrack… if only you could ride a pumptrack at mach-chicken on a massive downhill bike with a dual crown fork.

Description

Lower down on Twilight Zone you’ll reach a section of big wooden features, with a couple of huge wall rides, bridges, and air opportunities.

Further down the trail, the singletrack straightens out as it traverse along a delightful bench cut, allowing riders to rip into it at top speed!
