Description
This trail is usually ridden as part of the Chutes & Ladders Loop.

Chutes and Ladders starts right off with a hell of a Ladder. Most people are anaerobic before they get 100 yards from the start of the trail, and most need to walk at least part of the hills. They're incredibly steep, but rideable with good form and a lot of power.

They're mercifully short, and get easier after the first one. The downhills are steep too, but the trails are in nice smooth condition and tacky enough to hold you as long as you don't touch the brakes.

After about a half mile of chutes and ladders, you'll turn down to the cow pasture and the flowy fun begins. This part of the trail is very easy, very flowy, and very fast. Good riders will have fun trying to do the whole thing with no brakes.

The trail continues on, but the nature of the trail changes so dramatically, we've separated it into Lower Chutes & Ladders.
