Econo-Dave is an extremely fun, albeit short, intermediate singletrack descent. Its primary use is to connect with Dark Forest. Located in the Mosquito Lake Area, Econo-Dave is easily accessed via the southwest end of Econoline. Once you pop out onto the doubletrack at the southwest end of Econoline, turn left and ride east over to the well-marked trailhead for Econo-Dave. The trail is littered with small dirt jumps, making it a joy to ride. A number of rock slabs and some well bermed corners to keep your speed up, make this a fun and flowy descent. For the more experienced rider, the small jumps provide some great air options, while the less experienced can easily roll these without much fuss.
