An easy, enjoyable singletrack ascent to access all the downhill goods.

Nick Wilder

Description

Uphill traffic only on this one.
This is the primary singletrack to get from the lower parking lot to all the downhill trails such as Kessel Run, PBR, Chutes & Ladders, and Joe's Ridge. The real alternative is the road, which is a lot less fun and not much easier.

From the parking lot, cross the road and glide down the hill to a (usually) dried up pond. Head towards the hills passing a few intersections, following the good signs for Prime Cut. The trail climbs continuously through a wash, but never very steeply and it's generally easy. Near the top there are a couple rocks to watch out for, but this is a good introduction to the area.

Forecasting the weather...

I was not overly impressed with this trail. We rode it up to the top but it only took the one time and then we just started going up the road. I would probably be much better if ridden down. If you go out to 18 Roads I would suggest you use the road to go up on to get to the trails. Jul 6, 2014


This is a great example of a trail constructed expressly for uphill travel - super easy climbing, yet OH SO much more entertaining than riding the road. If you are looking for hard climbing this is not it, but as a fun way to get to go down again, gotta love it. Nov 1, 2015
