Overview

The Outback Trail is split into two sections. The West side is for beginners/novices. The Darkside is for novice/experienced riders.

Description

This route starts at the West MTB trailhead. It proceeds on singletrack towards McCool then across the river to the Darkside. Ride the darkside then take a right on the way back and ride the frontside.

The loop is full of twists and turns as well as quick climbs and short drops. It will keep you busy!

Beginner riders should NOT take this route. Follow the easy arrows and stick to the Beginner loop until you are confident to proceed to a more difficult course.

Got a little confusing on the Front side, which is the easier stuff. The Dark Side is very well marked and great flow trail. 13mi
