    i'm always a tad perplexed with people say "DH trails". does that mean pure shuttle trails or technical trails or what? even XC trails obviously have DH on them. to me there is technical trails (steeps, rocks, jumps, skinnies, drops, etc) and non-technical trails (either smooth or high speed type trails).

    I understand your frustration... I can relate 100%! I had to find some "DH trails" the hard way too. One of the places I found was somewhere in So Cal on private property. That is the reason it is so much like fight club. Once you get connected with a few people you can ride 'em too. It just isn't good to post directions and descriptions on this website. People and organizations are trying (successfully) to shut down a lot of places we ride. That is the reason for the secrecy. PM me again and I can help you out. Just keep all the public talk on the DL. It's all good! Hope you understand?!?!
