“A fun, fast descent through flowing and sweeping turns.”

Description
Climb to the top of this trail from Veterans Drive parking or Take Par None up then IMBA for a fantastic loop.

The climb up POW is all rideable but steeper than the Par None climb. IMBA climbs slightly if riding west from Par None but nothing difficult.

POW's descent is a lot of fun with mostly smooth sweeping turns and several opportunities for a little air - but be careful with your speed as you pass a short rocky section along a hillside as the fairly steep drop coming can take you by surprise and catch you attention.
Since the ride takes only 30 minutes. A nice ride is Par None/IMBA/POW loop a few times before returning to my truck.
