Need to Know

Will require pedaling up a steep hill to enjoy this trail.

Description

Double black diamond rated technical descent from the top of Dude Abides to North Backbone with sections requiring advanced bike-handling skills with consequential exposure. Optional harder lines.

If you're uncomfortable with the first rock feature, try another trail like Dude Abides or Hooligan instead. Things will get more exposed and mistakes will have higher consequences on El Duderino.

No uphill user traffic please, as this will impact safety of mountain bikers riding down this steep and narrow trail.

PLEASE do not alter/dumb down this trail. It's meant for people that bring the right skills.

Plenty of pink granite around you and under the wheels on North Backbone.
