Description

There are three main loops that make up this trail as follows:

Avalanche Trail Loop 1: No matter the daily direction, first thing youre going to do on Avalanche is climb. The ups and downs are steep, but also fairly short. The singletrack here is a bit narrower and at times quite twisty in and amongst the pines. There are some rough areas with some difficult rock and root combinations. Several tight switchbacks keep you busy on this loop.

Avalanche Trail Loop 2: Loop 2 continues the up and down, left and right theme that defines Avalanche. Weve packed a lot of trail in a small area so there isnt much straight ahead cruising. There are a few gravity drops in this loop which provide some speed and g-force as you run down into and straight back up out of a ravine. Theres also a great rock/boulder crossing feature on the high trail overlooking Little River that can be a fun challenge.

Avalanche Trail Loop 3: Across the bridges and out onto Loop 3 things settle in a bit and you get to stretch your legs. The singletrack out here is more linear and stays smoother for the most part. Its easy to get a rythym going and youll find a bit more flow. The miles go by faster here and many of us enjoy doing this loop twice before heading back through the twisties to complete the trail.
