Description

Upper Plunge and Lower Plunge are two steeper trails connected by a few seconds of climbing on Red Mountain Rd. The Upper Plunge was rerouted in 2018 to include grassy meadows in aspen forest, some rocky ledges and some big fast turns. The upper alignment retains a rocky section that drops down a tunnel of dark timber forest. At the top of Lower Plunge, you'll also find an intersection with the Hummingbird Trail. Neither Upper or Lower is recommended for uphill bike travel. Access Upper Plunge from 4 Corners Rd. / Red Mt. Rd., and then continue on Secret Trail before turning left for the fast drop down Upper Plunge. Lower Plunge is often ridden as a fast and rocky descent when paired with a climb up Hummingbird Trail to create a shorter loop down to Hunter Valley North.
