    Demo Slide

    Does anyone have recent pics of the slide at demo? Is it a big deal to get around?

    So there is also a slide on the eureka caynon side? Is it passable?

    There is no issues coming from eureka canyon road. Well except it's 30 min extra and boring ride on SUV loaded with bikes.

    I used to run tubes like you are, but then I got thorn in my wheel.

    Thanks for finding those pictures.

    I went out there with some friends and it truly is scary looking. Sheer drop, with no vegetation to anchor it. Hopefully it'll hold out for the summer since we should be in the dry season now.

    All emergency vehicles from Cal Fire and Santa Cruz County Fire and AMR are now prohibited from traversing the slide due to vehicle weight and road instability. EMS & Fire will only use Eureka Canyon rd from Corralitos.
