Description

Hesitation Point Trail is an out-and-back trail that ascends from Aynes Loop to the Hesitation Point Overlook. Riders will pass the foundation of a CCC cabin at the base of the climb. A steep climb and technical features like multiple rock gardens, logs, drops, bridges, and tight switchbacks make Hesitation Point a trail for experienced riders.

The challenging climb brings you to the parking area at the overlook. Be sure to snap a few photos here, especially in the fall, before descending down again. Hesitation

Point connects with the Walnut Trail, which begins at this parking area, just on the other side of West Gate Rd.

a great trail, but it is all tech with no flow, if they added some berms and jumps to smoother faster parts of the trail, then it would have some of everything. (i live close and have ridden the trail about 20 times so i know it well) Jun 30, 2016
