I rode this trail about a month and a half ago and just finally decided to do a review of it. I am going to start off mentioning that although Im not a heavily skilled rider, I think if you know how to control your bike and how to ride trails, this trail is doable. Just lay off the upper portion called world cup. Also, pay attention to the trail and scan ahead. On the trail there is a small jump off to the right side going downhill that if you don't clear it you will crash as there is a gap behind it.

Customer Service

Riding up Peutz Valley rd. Take the first trail head. The one thats before the tank. The first left takes you down a much better route to the trail. The Tank trail will take you down some loose dirt off the side of the mountain and you mostly hike it down.

Awesome trail and fun. Shuttled to the top, and mostly ate it or walked through the world cup section (very technical), however, I've only been riding seriously for 5 months now. But I don not recommend this section to beginners or even intermediate. The rest of the trail was fast and downhill til you got towards the end of the trail which was a small climb back to the road.

Customer Service

Park under the 8 freeway Bridge as mentioned in the other reviews. Ride up the road a little ways til you see a trail opening. From there you can ride up and back down. Or shuttle up and be lazy like me.

This is a great trail for downhill. fast technical in some parts rutted out big wall rides you can do on the way down. fun little jumps along the way. only thing is if you go from the bottom up. you have a good 40 min of hiking. the ride down dont last as long as id like it to only about 8 min or so. if you do world cup u can shuttle on to the top. pretty simple to get there world cup has some nice sized jumps and cool fun drops. fun to take as fast as you can like any other trail. the only thing is the pedaling near the end of that section sucks if your on a heavy dh bike like in the 40's range. but to sum it all up its a great trail worth the hiking and pedaling you have to do. great practice high speed stuff and just really fun. oh and watch out for guys coming down the trail if you hike... some of them are hauling ass. and on the way down look out for people hiking up and xc guys riding up.. mad props to them cause its pretty crazy i think

Customer Service

the way to shuttle up to world cup is simple but please dont drive crazy or wild and make sure to pick up your trash ect. dont want the locals to get pissed at shuttlers. thanks. so from where you Park at Peutz Rd under the 8 overpass go east up to the light. at the light make a left ur going to go over the 8. follow that road till u hit a stop at the very end make a left follow that road (victoria road) till you find anderson road make a left follow untill it turns to dirt. in the dirt road you will run into a fork STAY RIGHT if you go left its some dudes land follow that little road a little more and there is a parking area park there. continue to ride down the hill and the entrance will be on your left. its by the big rock

I've been out to Anderson Truck trails twice now and it is a blast. I'm just getting into mountain biking seriously and this trail is a great way to work on climbing and downhill skills. The climb up from Peuntz is long but not overly difficult...couple of rock gardens that can be tough to get through. We rode the second half of World Cup my second time on the trails out there and I would classify those as advanced riders only...I got a pretty good reality check.

On my second time out (1/31/09) my truck was broken into. I was parked under the 8 overpass and someone smashed my passenger side window and grabbed anything within reach. I was stupid enough to leave too much in my car, but I would recommend parking in the dirt lot closest to Alpine Blvd where there is more traffic. If anybody was out there on that day and saw something I'd appreciate the info.

Customer Service

Peuntz to the flat dirt plateau at the top and back down for novices.

Just received word today that ATT has been shut down to shuttle rides. The park ranger is posted out at the top. You can still ride up and down, though, but too many complaints about alcohol and injuries fianlly caught up to the park services department.

Depending on which way you ride this, it's either a super-intense workout or a break-neck thrillride. The ride up from Peutz is straightforward and not too technical, although it is relentless. I wouldn't classify it as "insanely hard" as Early Demise states it is. Just make sure to set your seatpost up. If you are going up to World Cup from Four Corners, you will really need to hike. It's too difficult to gain enough momentum to work your way up this part of the trail. The ride down is a total blast, though, with lots of drop-offs, doubles, bermed turns, ladders and ramps. World cup is a very advanced trail and should really be left to advanced riders with sturdy bikes. i've seen peolple get hurt badly up there.

Customer Service

Park at Peutz Rd under the 8 overpass and ride up the road to the Wall Of Bofus. Trail is self expanatory from this point up.

The vast majority of these reviews don't even cover the true potential of this trail!

Straight forth, the trail is nuts! All of the weight weenie XC guys who take the fire road down to the fast run,miss out on the true potential of the trail. towards the top of the first fire road, there is a section near a big rock that will take you down a very well routed Freeride set ups, quite a few drop offs, nuts jumps, huge rocks, bolders, step ups, tables, gaps, you name it! completely crazy... definately a good training ground for freeriders and even for DH runs.. eventually, the end of the (World CUP) freeride ends at a fire road, go left and stay on it to you come to triple fork in the road.. go straight to catch a pretty fast DH run, or hit more single track that still has pretty crazy jumps, and then hit the ending Dh trail...

The down hill section of it is wide open, not too rocky so you can litterally fly down it! The road is pretty un even which makes it even more of a blast! ... racing down it is probably te best part of the trail, but watch out, because if you fall off the side of that part, its a very VERY! long and steep drop to the bottom...

the great thing about this trail is its adversity. a trail for everyone with race stripped XC to full out DH rigs... you can have fun no matter what type of rider you are.

Customer Service

For DH/ Freeride/ take the harbison canyon exit, leave a vehicle there, and shuttle up to the top.. I forgot the roads, but its only like two or three turns. you actually have to go through some neiborhoods, until you reach Anderson street. Keep going past all the houses onto the dirt road, pass the two water tanks, head a couple miles up the road ( keep left), until you see this crap brownish rail area where everyone parks. rig up, and ride the fire road down.. you make a left turn right before this fancy gate on private property and decend down that. most of the fire road will be decending. and then you will have to briefly climb. Almost right at the climb look to your left and you will see an area where there should be bike tire marks leading to it next to a big rock... starts the trail head... enjoy your ride!
