Mt. Bachelor Bike Park’s newest trail is also its most technically advanced…
If you’re like me, you’ve been staring longingly at Rockfall since Mt. Bachelor first put in pin-flags marking the route two years ago. Then, this year, you started hooting and hollering at the trail crew while they were working on it (“Looking good! Hurry up!”). Now, all the anticipation is about to pay off when Rockfall officially opens on Friday, August 26th.
Last week I finally got a chance to preview this awesome new trail!
It was raw, rough, and not really ready for the public, so my riding buddy Aaron Ritter and I got a guided tour from trail builder (and DH ripper) Zach Liebowizt — or Lobowitz as you may know him.
These photos don’t really due justice to the steepness of the terrain, but they’ll give you an idea of what to expect the first time you charge this new DH trail at Mt. Bachelor Bike Park.
Here’s a quick video preview of Rockfall:
