Mostly good intermediate singletrack but a long steep hike near the end detracts a bit.

Overview

Description

Rawhide starts off with smooth, wide doubletrack that rolls just a bit until you hit a campground and the intersection with Waterhole. Turn left on singletrack and encounter some moderately challenging waterbars that will be rideable by confident intermediates. Contour around a hill on nice, fairly easy trail with great scenery.

You'll pass the other end of Waterhole, and continue on good singletrack until you start descending steeply to a creek bottom. Many people will want to dismount for a few short sections. Once at the creek bottom, the trail has been re-routed recently and switchbacks up a fairly smooth gentle grade up to the parking area.

With the new re-routes its recommended to do this trail clockwise or you'll have a big hike a bike climb after the creek.

Most of the trail is intermediate, but the downhill to the creek on the east side is fairly technical in spots.

Note that Rawhide has been rerouted from the top of Longhorn. The reroute is not in MTBproject yet. The end of reroute brings you half way up Wranglers Run rather than drop you off in the creek. Oct 12, 2015
