The Kenter Whoops are a marvel of human engineering and excavation. Created by local riders over the last 20 years, this 0.9-mile-long roller-coaster ride of whoops and jumps would surely have been bulldozed long ago had it been part of the state park system. Thankfully, the landowners have left this gem alone and have kept the area open to users. Some of the double jumps on this trail are Evel Knievel huge and should be attempted only by experienced dirt jumpers who drape themselves in protective gear. Because of the extreme difficulty, this is by far the most technically demanding ride in the Santa Monica Mountains. However, you don’t have to be Brian Lopes to ride here—every double can be ridden around safely.
