Don't let the name fool you, the Darkside is some of the best riding in the Mt. Wilson mountain biking complex. It is shorter and steeper than the Eaton Saddle drop, and for the most part it is in the shade of a deep dark forest. The trails are loamy-er and less loose than everywhere else on the mountain. Riders can get the full 5,000' drop too.
If you have never ridden the Darkside now is the time to check it out. Honestly, we at the Shuttles don't understand why everyone focuses on Mt Lowe and the Eatons. Darkside is the best terrain on the mountain.
