Description
Hide and Seek is unique in that it's the only top to bottom experience at Sandy Ridge. It's fast and rowdy, a trail that screams fun. Hide and Seek is really two trails in one, with an upper and lower section that is split by Homestead Rd just after the intersection with Two Turntables and a Microwave.

Starting at the upper kiosk, drop into a few quick berms before diving into tight, sometimes loose singletrack on the upper section of the route. Be ready for fast straight runs through gigantic tree gateways that dive into big sweeping switchbacks.

Check your speed from the rapid descent as you approach the junction with Two Turntables and a Microwave. You'll navigate a wet armored section before making a sharp right turn onto the bridge.

Stay right at the intersection past the bridge to get to the bottom half of Hide and Seek. The trail becomes more about long carving turns and the forest is more dense on the lower reaches.

Look both ways at the Homestead Rd crossing and stay right at two intersections with Laura's Loop as you finish the route at the bottom of Sandy Ridge.
