Unemployment Line is a smooth and flowy intermediate/advanced jump trail. This trail can be ridden by most intermediate-level riders, as the 40 jumps are either rollable or optional. More advanced riders can take advantage of the well-designed doubles and the 2 optional gaps.

The berms are big and allow you to carry speed through the entire trail. The trail builders clearly spent a lot of time and effort perfecting this trail. There is only one wood feature, Slayer drop, at the start of the trail.

Getting there:

  • Park at the lot at 4994 Samish Way
  • Head east across Samish Way onto Galbraith Lane
  • Keep straight onto the pipeline road
  • At the bottom of  Last Call, take the double track
  • Follow the double track across a large wooden bridge to the Checkpoint Alpha kiosk
  • From the kiosk head up the road
  • Keep right at Blue Rock
  • Keep right at Red Rock, and soon you’ll reach the top of Unemployment Line
