|Rockstacker and Jackson ST
The Rockstacker and Jackson Singletrack Trails are highly technical singletrack that form a downhill route from the Pothole Arch Trail at the top of Amasa Back. Rockstacker is 1.7 miles long; Jackson is 2.2. There's a fair amount of uphill climbing and some very dangerous spots on the downhill. Some areas are potentially deadly and should be carefully walked, not ridden. Only true experts should attempt this ride.
