    Viper

    I rode viper about 3 weeks ago, lot of work to get to the top and was a let down. No drops no jumps alot of short down bursts and climbs to the next section.
    Go to rocky peak lots of jumps lots of drop offs.
    Where is the other ride you wrote about?

    Maybe your in the wrong place. After you go up the 3 Biotches go straight and to your right behind the electric tower. There is a little 4 foot drop then about a 10foot+ drop just beyond that that drops onto a fireroad.

    Do a search for santiago oaks. People post pictures of the drops on this site all the time.

    Plus you can take a ride down the Chutes after that for DH. It's not very long but pretty dam steep!

    I think he was complaining about Viper, not Santiago Oaks.

    Drops jumps

    Santiago is a lot of fun. The 4ft drop is cake but the 12ft drop is a little hairy. I broke 2 ribs on the 12ft drop 2 weeks ago. There are also a bunch of jumps around that area, but you have to find them yourself or PM me and I can hook you up.

    Ya, I realized that after i posted, sorry bout that.

    But speaking strictly about the Oaks there are lots of jumps like he said. It's a great trail for anything.

    good for dh

    I ride my fly up there at its not bad. The top with the drops can be fun, the bigger drop has a scetchy landing but still fun to do. Chutes is also fast.
