Overview

This is a fun loop connecting a portion of the Storm King and COD trails. It is fun in both directions. It is heavily forested, so scenic horizon views are minimal. But you'll find an excellent trail system with technical (large lava rock sections), banked turns, and lots of fun sections.

Description

This loop can be ridden in either direction, fun both ways.

Storm King: Beautiful, fun, flow trail that goes and goes. It's curvy, minor technical, and lots of it. Also, very shaded. Enjoy.

COD: Cash on Delivery, appropriately named. Fun flow trail, with plenty of technical obstacles. The trail is heavily forested, so scenic horizon views are minimal. But you'll find an excellent trail system with technical (large lava rock sections), banked turns, and lots of fun sections. Also, Dirty Pirate can be accessed from COD (definitely a challenging terrain park....not for the faint of heart.)

*** Note as of 6-10-2019 : The connector from the South side of Cascade Lake Highway to the North side near the Green Gate Parking area has moved East of the Parking lot. If you try to find it West as it shows in the old map, you'll end up wandering through the woods off trail. The connector will bring you to the intersection of Storm King and Upper COD.

Dry and flowy trails. Upper cod has had a controlled burn done in the area so expect some blackened forest — 2h 25m
