Description

The Zipper Loop is most notable for its inspiring climb and outstanding views of the local area.

It has a good number of options to be ridden. After enduring the steep climb loaded with tight switchbacks the trail has a lot of rocky, bone shaking terrain. I found it to be very enjoyable for the many challenges throughout the trail. The ride back down the initial climb will put a smile that stays with you for a while.

The view north from the bluffs at the top of the Zipper. You can see the Zipper trail switchbacking down the slope behind and Golden Eagle Sports Complex in the background. Just right of the handlebars in the photo is Graffiti Rock.
