On this trail, you'll experience flowy wooded sections as well as challenging rock gardens to keep you on your toes.

The most common route is to head left when it forks and go in the clockwise direction. You'll pass signage for the various loops that branch off and then rejoin the race loop. Feel free to explore those as well, but know that the race loop in itself is enough to test your skills and stamina!

Lot of tight, technical singletrack in the first half followed by a second half of beautiful in the woods climbing.
