Sky Bridges and Stunts Little Falls Park - Trail, Bethesda, Maryland

Sky Bridges and Stunts Little Falls Park - Trail, Bethesda, Maryland

DESCRIPTION

There are a multitude of criss crossing single tracks throughout the Little Falls Park area. Someone has built up some sick North Shore-esque sky bridges, a couple of jumping areas and the start of a dual slalom course. Not many miles but it might be worth checking it out if you want to see someone break limbs falling off the 8 ft high platforms....Who rides this sick stuff?? Where is there more bootleg track??

its fun to ride but you kinda feel like your not sposed to be there. Lots of other trails that are fun to bike that lead away from the jumps.

This is a bunch of nice jumps, about 11 or 12 in all, with a nice quarter and wall ride, bowl that is good when not filled with water. the longest set of jumps is a six pack (group of three jumps/landings) of smallish jumps closely packed, fun to ride, to the far right as you're looking away from the crescent trail. on the far left is a set of 3 bigger jumps, much more spaced, with a nice double at the end. if you wish to jump just the double, you can hit the burm around a tree and run up to it. then there is a nice dual slalom -ish thing, starting with a jump right in the middle then two burms, then a 7 foot gap jump, then the biggest jump, over a 10 foot gap, shooting you about 6-10 feet high. there is a bit more, but otherwise not that amazing.

this is a must visit place if you like dirt jumping, otherwise known as the "cc jumps"

one more thing, please dont do any digging on any of the lines. we dont want them to get messed up.

coming from DC on the crescent trail, cross mass. ave. on a small bridge, then keep riding until you are almost at a big bridge over river road. to the right, next to the cinderblock factory is a bench and a steep uphill trail. follow the trail and you'll reach the jumps.

the tight six pack is pretty small but fun and you can launch on the last one if you do it right. the first two in the set on the right arent great, but the last ones pretty nice

Came to visit Bethesda and decided to hunt down this trail. Found it with minimal searching. Got up to the top of the hill and immediately noticed all the painted trees. Some had smilies while some told me to '**** off' or 'stay out'. Unfortuantly I was riding a bike not suited to the jumps, so I couldn't fully try out the lips or such. Like prior reviewers have mentioned, the North Shore bridges arn't terribly great (or safe for that matter). Their is plenty of stuff for all skill levels; beginners would like the berms and small 'log jumps', for lack of better word. There is alot to go big on--might want to just put caution to the wind and give it a go. I took pictures while there, and will upload them shortly. BMX'ers would probably enjoy this prime dirt as well.

Good luck.

Take the Capital Crescent trail from Bethesda heading towards Mass. avenue. You will cross one bridge (a flat one), then finally a larger sloped bridge going over Mass Ave. About 1/4th of a mile past the bridge lies a park bench on the lefthand side. Behind that bench should be a super-steep hill. At the top lies the jumps.

Local bike shop guy says these get torn down periodically by the county but are built up soon after.

Customer Service

Called the North Shore by some locals. Trail is actually just off the capital crescent near River Road. More sky bridges are also between Mass Ave and McCarthur in Little Falls Park.

This park is totally sick, ladders ramps and a lot of unknown singletrack back there. There is also another park after Macurthur Blvd. A friend of mine built this park he has ridden some of the ladder's and says it's a little loose, so break an arm.

There are some big ass gaps to hit a roller section and a tiny XC trail if you look for it. its sweet. and of course the ladders that require huge balls to do and I just dont got 'em. We are gonna build a tiny down hill thing hopefully and ppl are building a sick double to do backflips, cant wait to see that.

Customer Service

get out there and hit what you feel like and feel like you don't have big enough balls and go home sad.

If the rangers would stop plowing it there would be so much more cool stuff but building it is part of the fun.

Had to check out b/c of reviews. Really 2 seperate areas. Start down paved path to Little Falls to find short, easy singletrack with openings into areas with various ramps. Go back across Mass Ave to find the sky bridges and DH course. Check it out even if you don't ride it. If you're going to ride this stuff, bring some friends, phone, sling, whisky, etc.
