Ricochet downhill trail is probably the fastest of the five runs with bigger, sweeping turns interspersed with rooty sections.

The top section is a gentle slope through the woods with a few small table-tops, before some big bermed turns into the steeper section of the course. While not as sheer as the Black Run, it still has plenty of challenge with fast off-camber sections and rooty drops, before a set of tighter switchbacks at the end.

Ricochet is suitable for all riders; the top is especially appropriate for those starting out riding downhill. It contains small jumps and technical elements, but everything can be rolled over.

A great run to start your downhill riding at Aston Hill.
