Where is it, and why is it so gnar? (if it's a secret, don't tell where it is)

All of em are in Vancouver and my story is too long to type.

But I guess my Cali story is from Santa Barbara down Tunnel when I blew my shock out half way down the trail.
Tunnel is tame compared to some other trails in the Socal vicinity :'(

Tell your story.
The one you asked about on the central coast. I've ridden a lot of steep and gnarly stuff. Things that most people wouldn't even consider a trail. Despite all that, nothing ever truly prepares you for it.

Most gnar trail I've seen is called "oops I forgot the name" also on the central coast a ways north of santa Barbara, be interested to hear how that one compares.

I'd imagine it still pales in comparison to some of the stuff in Utah, like redbull rampage status.

Sorry didn't realize the name of the trail was taboo as well, though I was good with just leaving out location.

Man, that was my favorite trail at N*. I had a blast going down that and learning along the way.

I'll second Jeng with Tunnel trail in Santa Barbara, but this was back in 1992
with 2.5" travel up front and no suspension in the back....It was a blast then
as I am sure it is now...

there is some stuff at Bootleg that is not only steep and technical, if you fall is like landing in a box of saw blades.
Very true. I haven't been there in 2 years and I wonder how it would seem to me now. But there were two trails I didn't want anything to do with then, Poopshoot and Ginger if I remember correctly.

There's one here in CO that some of the local pros get sketched out on. "We should never have built that trail" was one comment I heard riding up in the shuttle truck.
