FATMAP difficulty grade
Bootleg Canyon is renowned for rocky, challenging singletrack, regardless of whether you're shredding on a big downhill bike or pedaling a long cross country loop.
When it comes to shuttle runs, several trails drop off the top of the mountain, plummeting straight down the front side via gnarly double black diamond trails.
On those trails, you'll find gap jumps, massive rock gardens, and all manner of gnar. This run is one such full-on downhill run.
While Snake Back isn't to be trifled with, local riders note that Snake Back isn't quite as technical as other shuttles on this side of the mountain.
Notably, G-String , Kevorkian, and Diva are all significantly more technical than Snake Back.
If you're slowly working your way up in technical difficulty while riding at Bootleg Canyon, Snake Back is a good stepping stone before progressing to the most insanely technical trails.
If you can't ride Snake Back, then it's best to pass on the other trails.
