The Edge Cutoff East starts at the end of the Edge Loop - Lipan Canyon Section. The route is a short cut of sorts to the upper part of 18 6/10 Road. However, it's a very up and down section of trail.

From the intersection with Lipan Canyon, Edge Cutoff East climbs and descends across several drainages. As the trail approaches 18 6/10 road the hard climbing diminishes and rolls through some fun flowy sections.

The trail ends at 18 6/10 Road. Turn left to continue on the Edge Loop - IMBA Epic or stay straight ride Edge Cutoff West to Chutes & Ladders.
