Winding through the sandstone and juniper, this perfectly pitched ridgeline is a local favorite.

This is borderline grizzly bear habitat. Carrying bear spray is a good idea.

Description

Winding through the sandstone, juniper and sage country, this perfectly pitched ridgeline has quickly become a locals favorite. This trail is surprisingly well sheltered when the strong westerly winds blow downslope. From the stile (staircase over the fence, for all you city slickers) take the left most trail that will loop you around the west side of the slope.

This trail is a steady climb that will hold your attention with constant rock obstacles making you watch your line carefully. Riding it downhill (why else would you bother climbing it) is a fast and furious affair requiring precise steering between the numerous bits of sandstone that are ready to eat up anyone who ventures off the fine line. For the advanced rider, it doesn't get much better than this.

The top of the Outlaw Trail is the intersection of the Redneck Jungle (the downhill trail to the southeast) which is your quickest way back to the trailheads, and Twisted Sister, the left or west and best defined uphill trail. Twisted Sister leads you to the top of this trail network. The right or easterly uphill trail is a less used, but still fun trail called Older Sister.
