Features -none-

There is a lot of downhill use on this section of Tiddlywinks! Be cautious if climbing it and use the up-route around the top man-made features.

Description

Ride from Wanoga Sno-Park towards Kiwa Butte. From the highest point at the intersection of Kiwa Butte Trail and Tiddlywinks, you'll descend a ripping fast and flowing section of singletrack with challenging rocks, turns, and berms through the top steep section of the trail.

The singletrack then turns into a bike park style roller coaster ride with giant banked turns, rollers, and table tops. The trail is built with both Experts and Intermediates in mind so there are rollable routes over all the features. Experts will find this trail to be one of the best in Bend, if not the state.

After the bike-park section of trail, things flatten out for half a mile on an old doubletrack. When the trail starts to descend again, the speed picks up on a fast rolling doubletrack that allows you to open it up and go as fast as you're comfortable with. The trail turns back into singletrack and begins to flatten out towards the end. It keeps a good flow as it descends, with little short spurts of pedaling through rock gardens before finishing at the three-way intersection with Funner and Lower Storm King.

Overrated downhill. Doesn't have a lot of flow. Do Funner instead.

Tons of fun! Fast & flowy w/some great banked corners. Don’t have the confidence for all the jumps yet, but I’m getting there! 4.1mi
