Downieville Video :: Butcher Ranch Trail

I shot some helmet cam footage of the Downieville downhill course. The course runs down Butcher Ranch, Second Divide, and then First Divide.

The flat fire road section at the start of the trail. This is the section that requires a lot of pedaling during the downhill race.

The transition off the fireroad into the first sections of single track. Not that steep yet but with a few rocky sections.

The rest of the single track down to the bridge. This has fun steep fast sections. Probably the best part of the trail.
