“An arduous climb up Ollason Peak, followed by 10-15 minutes of narrow downhill.”— Jordy Boom
Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown
It's followed by a descent on the backside of the peak, which then leads into a very narrow singletrack along a canyon wall.
Need to Know
There are 3 small dry creeks (less than 1 foot wide) to cross during the descent that are not optional and require hike-a-bike or jumping.
The reward for the climb is a long technical downhill along a canyon wall. The difficulty comes mostly from the narrowness of the trail, with the canyon lurking below (10-20 feet) and the tight turns.
There are various other trails here that can be combined. After the descent, you can turn left at the main road to repeat the loop.
