Fast and rowdy; a top to bottom experience of Sandy Ridge.

Leslie Kehmeier

Overview

Description

Hide and Seek is unique in that it's the only top to bottom experience at Sandy Ridge. It's fast and rowdy, a trail that screams fun. Hide and Seek is really two trails in one, with an upper and lower section that is split by Homestead Rd just after the intersection with Two Turntables and a Microwave.

Starting at the upper kiosk, drop into a few quick berms before diving into tight, sometimes loose singletrack on the upper section of the route. Be ready for fast straight runs through gigantic tree gateways that dive into big sweeping switchbacks.

Check your speed from the rapid descent as you approach the junction with Two Turntables and a Microwave. You'll navigate a wet armored section before making a sharp right turn onto the bridge.

Stay right at the intersection past the bridge to get to the bottom half of Hide and Seek. The trail becomes more about long carving turns and the forest is more dense on the lower reaches.

Look both ways at the Homestead Rd crossing and stay right at two intersections with Laura's Loop as you finish the route at the bottom of Sandy Ridge.

Mostly Dry: Both trails we did were perfectly dry. Didn't see anyone muddy in the parking lot either.

The first half of Hide and seek was a lot more difficult than I expected. Lots of loose rocks and big roots. For my skill level, I was not prepared for all of that. After the bridge the route became a lot more fun however. Aug 2, 2015

Giving this entire trail one rating is deceiving. The top half is definitely more of a blue-black and the lower half blue. As Tony's previous comment noted, it's a lot more difficult than I expected as well. The top section has some steep downhill through rocks and tight trees (all at once) so an intermediate rider will be on and off their bike A LOT. The bottom section is super flowy and awesome.

Lots of pedaling and tight switchbacks that you have to skid into and then pedal out. Some sections arte are decent, but feels like a flat downhill. Nov 11, 2017
