“A great weekday ride.”
— Doug Seybert Jr on May 17, 2013
OverviewThis ride has a tough climb in the beginning and it's very rocky throughout. It's a bit challenging, but the downhill is a great reward.
Need To KnowEquine incline can be done CW or CCW, but it's a bit more difficult CW.
On the weekend the Way Up trail gets pretty busy and you can't go too fast downhill. This is a much better ride on a weekday just for the fact that you can bomb back down to the car as fast as you dare.
DescriptionStart up The Way Up trail. It's a tough climb and pretty technical, but has a few good areas to catch your breath. When you pass the covered benches you're almost to the top, but the next section is the toughest.
Once at the top, take the first right on the MexCal trail. This will take you down to get setup for the Equine Incline. On this ride I did Equine Incline clockwise, which is the more difficult direction.
After dispensing with the Equine Incline, take the fire road around to the Overlook Loop. There are a few different ways to attack this loop as well. There's another trail that runs along the reservoir that's a little more fun than this one that I will post in a separate post. There's some real tough short climbs on this loop and some fun short downhills, but they all add up to a good tough loop.
