    Stupid question because I have a friend with a downhill bike - is Hoot shuttleable?

    Yes, but not really worth it. The road in is from conservation road, north of harmony market and it circles down into Rock creek road. Rock creek is one way back out to highway 20 south of Harmony Market. I usually just climb the road out and hit the pioneer south side on the other side of the higway back to Harmony. Probably a 20 minute climb out.

    Start at harmony. Ride pioneer to hoot and at the end of hoot go left on Rock creek road.

    Speak for yourself. I have a huge collection of videos that are of top tubes in action. Top tubes ONLY. Down tubes or seat tubes need not apply.
    What's wrong with him??

    Yeah the intro vid was taken from several vid clips where the angle was bad. The Hoot video has it pretty dialed by the time I made that one.

    One thing that would be useful in these videos would be a quick summary on where to park, how to get to the trail head, where to camp/stay, bathrooms, etc.

    Good advice. On my Sly Park Trail 8 vid I show the Trailforks Map. The narrative addition would be great. Nobody does that that on the regular that I know of and it would be cool.

    You are not allowed to shuttle Hoot, it says so up at the market. Please don't spread misinformation about one of the funniest trials up here. The horse people already want us off the trail, and if they catch wind the people are shuttling it, the will have a field day.

    I don't know the trail or the area but how exactly does someone enforce the "not allowed to shuttle" rule? Unless it's private property, who enforces that?

    I dont know, but again, we are already in a battle with the horse freaks over this train, lets not give them any more ammo. Its seriously a 10 min climb out on an easy road.

    So sorry. I wasnt advocating it. I encouraged the climb. I do claim ignorance and I've never read any signs as such there. Thanks for schooling me.

    What market?

    Are horse people riding on this trail? It looks like a flow / jump trail.

    It crushed me when I was new at it. 4 rides later and it was just a supreme experience. I went home feeling the flow still. It was kind of surreal. A trail has never done that for me before. It haunts you and calls you back.
