Downhill Skateboarding Spot in Northern California

Driving north along the California coast, heading north from Mendocino, Hwy. 1 crosses the mountains  north of Ft. Bragg (a way more real town than Mendocino) to join up with Hwy. 101. After you climb to the ridge top, there's maybe a 5-mile winding downhill until you get to the south fork of the Eel River. Looks like it would be great for experienced downhillers. Too steep for me, but for you guys who can slide and maneuver, it's a long downhill ride. How about full moon, 3 AM when traffic is scarce? Full safety gear including bright headlight and flashing red tail lights...
   Once you hit the Eel, it's a few miles to Smithe Redwoods State Reservation, which has:
-Big deep swimming hole
-Old growth redwoods that are truly holy
