It does look scary. Even in the pictures. Just didn't want to miss anything EXCITING if you did try it.

Hells gate looks freaking crazy. I'd want some decent breaks and nice low gearing for that one! reminds me of the hill where I wheel except no one takes jeeps on it, just bikes, and quads. Ive heard of people in vehicles going up but not down. I attempted it today and only made it about 1/3. probably should air down next time.

Anyways this looks like a ton of fun, I'm still gona be dreaming of making it out there someday.

Trust me, this hill is nothin like anything anywhere. IF!! you make it down the entry hill thats only 1/4 the way. Hells gate is a monster. When you stand at the bottom and look in the sand you see glass and parts from other roll overs. And then you look up the hill and see all of the other crap you have to go over. You will poop your pants looking at this beast

Haha I bet, it looks crazy, and is a heck of a lot more twisty than the hill I run. the bad part about mine is its flat, and sheer. so nothing to get a grip on. Its definitely no hells gate but its tough. thats where I got stuck. http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/g..._7672677_n.jpg.

anyways, I def want to make it out there to see it in person someday

Some from todays Poison Spyder run.





This is grave of a little girl that was bitten by a poisonous spyder, thus the name of the trail
