Alot of of high level jumps and one kind of hidden jump at the bottom by the field. It's really fun to clear the spines down the center or a jump to bank that leads to a really fun high-air spine.There is about 30 jumps, to find them all you need to explore the ENTIRE park. To see the whole park and a kickass biker on it type
Brett Van Fossen Biking on youtube. he kiks ass!!!

Customer Service

The spines right down the middle, to the 2 mini-spines, to the big air one at the bottom... figure it out.

Sick Jumps and drop offs with gaps in the middle. Best jumps around Danville, but the trail kinda sucks. Bring your DJ bike if your hitting the jumps, your freeride if hitting the drops or your xc if hitting the trail.

Customer Service

The trail starts out going flat and passing the jumps. Then you gotta open a gate and then comes a huge climb. You'll be better of walking this cause first gear doesnt really cut it. Don't go up the Sycamore Ridge trail, go down Sands or Short ridge.

Las Trampas was a sick trail but just like WTF said, it got ruined by a bunxh of losers who thought they were hard core and cool by posting it up on a site and making people want to ride there. I went up there recently and everyone and their mom was on it. Even kids on bmx bikes. The rangers don't enforce the law there too much anymore but i hope whoever posted that trail on a site will read this and give him/her self a punch in the face for me.

Sycamore is as cool as you make it. There are mostly small jumps, but there are two big ass jumps that are side by side. The drops are cool, but the aforementioned 20 footer is actually a 25 footer, and is NOT a drop. It is a 70 angle, but if you hop or wheely it, it feels alot bigger. At the top of the bowl, there are some chutes, and there is a 7 footer. this is probably the largest true drop here, and it lands onto very loose dirt. Oh, almost forgot... there's a new jumpit's a good 8 foot step-down jump...and that's the drop. When you go there, don't leave crap everywhere, like garbage or shovels. Borrow the shovels from the baseball storage bins, but make sure you return them, because people like me and my friends would still like to ride here and not get ticketed. Small children on BMX bikes will be kicked out immediately.
4 stars until the jumps get better

Lots of small jumps with big gaps. The hucks are a little more like step down jumps. Oh, how the hell are those two stepdowns jumpable? Thats a 16 foot gap with 4 foot drop. What the hell? The jumps are fun as hell but can get a little huge.

i built a few of these along with dustin and the guys from san ramon high. its really sick if you live in the area go check it out. must have a mountain bike to do the jumps dont even bother with a bmx bike it is too bumpy and you need suspension. PS there are hella snakes and i am not joking so be careful and dont go there alone because it is very easy to get hurt on the step downs. Shout out to the boys at alamo bikes you guys kick ass.

WTF?!?   [Sep 12, 2002]

This isn't exactly the best way to keep a riding area open. Advertising on the net is a surefire way to get a area closed down. Look at dueys, you wonder why its crap now and why it's being patrolled. It's most likely because because too many people on here started riding it.SO SHUT UP.

Customer Service

it isn't a trail. You kids are retarted for even posting it. Congratulations you coulda just ruined it for everyone else

Similar Products Used: Can't tell you any of em or else they'd all end up on this hoaky website. This shouldn't get one star at all, the whole place is even bad rite now anyway cuz no one is maintaining it. Advertising an area where you trespass, steal property to build jumps, and then destroy the area by building jumps is by no means a good idea to keep the place open.

Seriously, all the rich blackhawk people would be too damn lazy to get off their fat asses and tear down the jumps. And the the 30 footer and 12 foot jump/drop are still in fine condition.

Customer Service

cmon man. I highly doubt the park gives a damn that place is even there in the first place. That area was already there and all crapped up from kids trampling on it. if anything the place is better now. So don't go complaining how it's already ruined because somebody posted on it. BTW- take a look at steve's front yard- the guy's building a place right in front of his house and he's advertising and asking people to come check it out.
