Great tails and great operation. This was my 1st time on these trails and I'll be back. I really appreciate the other riders waiting at key points on the trail to be sure I made it back to the shuttle.
The scenery is wonderful and the trails are challenging but not too technical so that an intermediate rider such as me coudn't have fun. I admit I hoofed it on several occasions and went down hard at leat three times. Put on the protective gear and have a ball.
Great time Chris!

Now folks this is the bomb. Get picked up at 10:30 (for you late sleepers or early risers that caught the 7 and 9 shuttle) and head up into the mountains for the rest of the day. Bombing down Silver Moccasin Tail multiple times and also Red Box to Switzer. Cool temps, no people and real clear air. Cap it off with a run down the front side back to JPL in time to grab the shuttle again at 4. Then back to Silver Moccasin to bomb down as many times a light will allow. Now with a little planning it would be possible to do the front side after the sun goes down by bringing lights. Let's see, ride from 7 in the morning till 7:30 at night mostly all downhill? Am I in heaven or what?

We will load the shuttle 10 minutes prior to departure. You will need to sign a waiver before boarding the van so plan accordingly.
The shuttle will take you to EITHER: Red Box for multiple Red Box...
