Description

Iron Gate is generally ridden as a downhill trail, which is the direction it is mapped here. It's a relatively smooth and swooping singletrack dirt descent with a few exposed roots and tight turns. Features include berms, rollers, and a few small jumps.

There's a split halfway for the Concrete Block Trail going left which starts with a wooden drop. This provides great access to Firelane Trail and a more extended ride on the lower portion of Roller Coaster.

Up, down, left, right, left, up, down, right. Keep your eyes at least 10 feet ahead at all times.

Southwest entrance to Homeless Camp trail is fairly flowy although a bit off-camber.

This trail is all about the flow and berms!  Always optimizing custom drainage techniques, trained stewards prioritize sustainable trails for all.

New berm added in 2018 near the bottom of Iron Gate

Third berm in contour line section. This area is a popular deer habitat, so you'll want to be alert, especially if undergrowth is dense.
