Rainmaker Map

Rainmaker is a must ride for advanced downhillers looking for air time and high speed turning. From start to finish the run is almost three miles long with the majority of jump features being tables that are easily rolled if desired. The run starts with two initial step down jumps followed by a short ride over wooden bridges, afterwhich there are a series of medium to large table top jumps and large berms before intersecting with the mountain road. The next section starts off with a couple of small jumps followed by a series of smooth high-low berms with several more bigger jumps before the next intersection known as Five Points. These jumps are the most varied in size with some being relatively small for the trail and two having significant gaps to clear, however the most consequential doubles also have obvious paths around. From Five Points, Rainmaker continues with more medium/large table top jumps, steep berms, and a couple of wooden transition features before merging with the end of long trail.
