A short but really sweet lead-in to the newer downhill flow trail, MoJoe.

Description

Joe's Ridge is accessed just off the 18 Road at the upper parking lot. It starts out as a mostly gentle climb, with one or two steeper anaerobic sections, characteristic of this area.

The trail soon climbs out to a ridge and descends. It's fast and flowy, and encourages you to let go of the brakes and let it roll. There are just a few spots that can bite you as the speeds increase, but it's mostly just a sweet section of trail. The views are great and there are more trees here compared to other trails.

Ride to the dirt road (Mitchell Road) and follow it for 0.2 miles until Joe's Ridge crosses the road and heads downhill. You'll cross the Kessel Run, and then the main road (18 Road), then finish with a short downhill to the Cow Pond intersection, just below the parking area. This lower section is smooth, fast, but a whole lot less interesting than the upper part.

A better option from Mitchell Road is to go straight across to the MoJoe trail to complete a loop back to the lower parking lot.

A good alternative to Zippity for those who are intimidated by the exposure of Zippity Do Da. Apr 16, 2017

Such a rad ride! Looking for the guy who snapped some pictures of our massive group last night at sunset (10/20). Much appreciated but wasn't able to find you after! Oct 21, 2018
Super fun run and easy loop via prime cut. Definitely recommend as a 1st run if you have any doubts about Zippity Do Da. If this sketches you out do not attempt Zippity Do Da. If you are good with this one - it is perfect prep for what you will encounter on Zippity and more Oct 22, 2018
