Notes:

Huckleberry Hound is a fast flowy trail stacked with a jumps, table tops banked corners and fast straights.  If you like to get air then Huckleberry Hound is for you!

Huckleberry Hound used to be the only intermediate trail from the shuttle drop off, but now that they've extended Corners to the top Huckleberry Hound sees less traffic.  While Huckleberry Hound may not look that different to Corners I found a massive contrast in the riding experience.  While my legs were crying out on Corners it was my upper body feeling the strain as I scrubbed almost all of the jumps.

The trail head is just down the road from the shuttle drop off (adjacent to the start of Corners).  The start of Huckleberry Hound is just off the roadside but itís not long before the trail descends into the forest with some fast straight sections linked by a few banked corners.

Huckleberry Hound gets its name from all the jumps and there must be a hundred of them ranging in size and length from little bumps to massive table tops and doubles. Huckleberry Hound has something for every level of rider .. even people like me who have trouble escaping the Earthís gravity.

Donít let Corners get all the action; have at least one run on Huckleberry Hound.

Starts just down the road from the Shuttle Drop Off, ends at Hill Rd.  From Hill Rd continue on down Little Red Riding Huck or the lower section of Corners.

This website is brought to you by MTB weekend warrior Aaron Markie.
There are plenty of great websites out there with a wealth of information about Mountain Bike Trails,
however in my experience its hard to get a good mix of info, maps, photos and videos of trails I've never ridden.
The idea of this website is to tie those 4 elements together and give you a more detailed look at the MTB Trails I ride.
If you have anything to add then let me know.
