    Its in the same area of power line and all that... sorta. So if you do power line and make the first right it does some switch backs and goes down hill for a sec. Then you cross a sandy wash( this sandy wash is the alternate down hill if you skip the nothing drop) the trail goes up hill makes a quick right turn does two switch back and youll see some green poles with wire on them.. the drop is just pased this..... ... i ride wednesdays at 630 .. parking at menaul



    Edit
    Here is the thread that helped me find it nate henry has it tagged in google maps

    I've gotta check that place out sometime... I've been meaning to do it way before now..

    more

    The first one didn't turn out as badly as it could have...just a cut on the shin and the rental bike was OK too

    The second pic is some guy that just bombed through as we were scoping things out.

    Looks a wee bit "nose-down," how'd the landing go?

    We were thinking this is the nothing drop...its right next to the power line at the top of 365 right below the steep roll over in the other pic

    The front wheel augured in a bit in the loose stuff at the bottom and he took off running but kept his balance till he bashed his shin on a rock...just a little blood

    Maybe it's just the angle the pic was taken from but this looks like it didn't turn out too well.
