Description
This trail requires some commitment. As the longest single trail in the Allegrippis, the far end of Rays is also about as far as you can go North and West (and doesnt have a bailout).

This trail has a good amount of elevation change throughout, but the clockwise direction has more overall descent. Begin the ride in this direction by taking Berry Patch or Ridge to their NW terminus. All of these trails converge at a scenic area that overlooks the lake. Take in the view, and start Rays there.

Whoop. The first two miles of this trail is definitely the most fun, since most of it is DOWN. From the overlook, youll lose about 300 feet in this section. The speed will ramp up in places and several spots have optional pedaling. Plenty also to pump and jump with rollers and grade reversals.

The decision making arrives at the end of it. If you are heading back to the Bakers Hollow Lot, take Sidewinder down ride up Osprey to take the quickest way back via Fawn or Doe. Going up on Sidewinder will be a bit longer by taking Loco Motive, Red Legs, Grippis and Allie. Or, for even a longer ride, you could use Osprey to access Hydro Loop, Eagle and Sleek Dog before working your way back.
