Toothless is an advanced downhill run located on Moose Mountain. It starts off innocently enough; a flat section with a short up, before you’re thrown full bore into it. The first Technical Trail Feature (TTF) is a filter for the trail, if you’re not comfortable riding it, best continue down Family Guy. Tight and twisting turns with a number of berms to keep your flow and check your speed make this a thrilling descent. About two minutes down the trail hit the small jump (use caution and check your speed) that will throw you into the start of the gnarly steep section of trail. Hang on to your bike here. The steep section takes you down loose dirt and jagged rock, while you pick up speed due to the extreme steepness. There is a ride around built to avoid this section altogether, so if you don’t like getting your butt sucked into your rear wheel, take the ride around for a smoother run. Once past the super steep section, you’ll encounter more loose rock and a TTF before riding out a monstrous steep berm and the remainder of the trail to the creek bed at the bottom. From there it’s a 10 minute pedal back to Ing’s Mine parking lot.
