This is the hardest trail on the shore for riding stunts. Pros only. Jerry has pushed well past where Dangerous Dan left off with The Circus. The rig starts with the coolest log I've ever ridden--a rounded one that curves down for 30 feet with the highest point 10 feet above ground. This takes you into some skinnies that side loft you to a transition to bermed air, to a huge wooden wall ride (check out NWD4 and NSX7 videos to see how the pros do it).
From there the trail is mayhem: blind 17 foot gapped step downs over stumps, downhill 4 inch wide log rides with airs on the end, a 130 foot 5 inch wide log ride to 8 foot drop over a 6 foot gap, a launch to a step down 12 foot gap, a bunch of wooden and dirt jumps with a load of log and ladder bridge riding. Best to ride it with someone who has done the trail before; do it on a bone-dry day wearing as much armour as possible. This trail has definitely pushed north shore riding to its biggest height yet.
More Mt Fromme mountain biking trails can be found here.
follow the fire road (mountain highway) 5 to 10 minutes past the fifth switchback. Jerry Rig is the first trail on the left after Air Supply (Air Supply is 10 feet above Lower Oil Can which is marked with a large wooden sign chained around a tree at the trailhead). The Rig is a 5-minute pedal up from Air Supply. There is a tree on the left with pink numbers (3.2) and there is a clearing that looks like a parking space--look for the trail head on the other side of this clearing. After the wall, ride, and step down you cross Air Supply by the double teeter totter; the Rig continues past the old Peugeot car(hence Air Supply's previous trail name: "Peugeot") on the down side of Air Supply. The trail ends on the Baden-Powell where Grannies ends.

Upsidelots of other trails in the area Downsidehard to find this one CommentLooks like a case of local misinformation. From how Jerry's Rig sounds, its probably smart to direct people elsewhere. From what I gathered from other riders, Jerry's descends from the gravel pit westward but I couldn't find it. I'm sure the 'locals' will still say its near Air Supply (thats Starfish). Thanks for the BS directions in the write-up.

Commenthey freeridebryce, you're wrong - no stunts are dsimantled, there is no hike-a-bike if you launch where you're supposed to launch and the entrance off air supply is not the starting entrance. before you post check the facts

UpsideTruly challenging DownsideMany of the stunts have been dismantled by the District. It can still be ridden but there are lots of hike-a-bike sections Commentthe directions are mostly correct, except that the entrance is now off Air Supply. Go to the end of Air Supply and follow the obvious ladder bridge across the hill before starting downward.
