    Juneau Downhill

    There is a trail behind Home Depot with jumps built on it, I don't know if it's good but it's way beyond anything I would try. I don't know what's going on at Eagle Crest, I'm not up to that level of riding.

    the trail behind Home Depot ( lemon creek trail) is RUGGED! there are some pretty advanced very tech sections of that run. Eagle Crest doesn't really have much going on for bikers... which is retarded... but that rant can wait. Another good DH run is the Spaulding Meadows trail in the Auke Bay area. its relatively short, around a mile or two, don't know the length. the only down side is that it is basically a smooth yet FAST fire road descent and it is frequented by lots of hikers. haven't been there in a long time, but the Perseverance Trail off of Basin road is supposedly pretty good too.

    EDIT:
    hahah apparently the censors didn't like my nick name for Home Depot. guess when you replace the E on home with an O it becomes too offensive. although it's more descriptive of the shopping experience
    I'd be unstoppable... If I could just get started !!

    I tried the Perseverance Trail, but there were way to many dog walkers in the way.

    haha, yeah, and the dogs get in the way too

    that's the problem with most of the trails around Juneau... none are specific to bikes, and this town has a ton of dogs.

    So when you shop at Home depot you are having homoerotica feelings? Weird. I feel less gay when I shop for home repair items.

    no. It was a failed attempt to convey something that I thought- at the time- was rather humorous.

    If I offended you ( or anyone else who read this), I'm sorry
