Trail shared by Nick Wilder

The best way to connect Vail resort to the long rides that go through Two Elk Pass.

Description

This is a great section of singletrack connecting the Two Elk Trail, Bowman's Shortcut, and the ski area.

Surprisingly easy singletrack climbs up through Outer Mongolia Bowl to the top of the Mongolia lift.

From there, follow the singletrack (not the dirt road or lift line) straight across. It stays above a rock band, which you eventually have to carry your bike through. Look for the obvious notch.

Several amazing long epic rides use this connection. Fantastic scenery in every direction.
