This video makes that drop between 13 and 16 look like a gentle slope. Other than that, this is awesome.

Wow, great aerial footage. I just rode the ridge on June 18th and does that footage ever bring back the layout of the track!! I wish the incredible topography of ups an downs could be appreciated from the air---but, that probably is not possible. Great video!! Thanks for sharing it. What date about, was this video taken?

Cool video! I haven't been to that track yet. Is there any fencing between the track and the tree line to keep the fury woodland creatures off the track?

Thanks, I shot this yesterday. And yes, there's not a video that shows how sweet this track is. I walked it, and was amazed at how much character it has.

Very cool perspective, thanks for posting. The view reminded me a little of growing up when my parents would take me up in their Cessna 150.

Awesome man - I'm training to be a helicopter pilot myself. Definitely going to fly down there sometime....

And yes, the ridge is freakin sweet. I have a couple on-board videos here, again they don't do justice to the elevation gains. Thanks for sharing this! (Also, what's the story on the pilot/helo. Were you guys hired for aerial photography or just friends with the track owners?)
