Description

Fun trail with lots of rocks, roots, sand and some climbs. The trail sheds water well and is generally rideable right after a rain.

The first part of the trail is fairly flat and twisty. The first climb is an old creek bed and gets tough for a second before flattening back out. A few miles in you'll find some fast downhills before dropping into the pines. Lots of root filled drops give way to rocky climbs around mile 5.

There is a quick descent into a series of switchbacks and they are followed by another climb. Pick your line and hit it!

The last few miles are a mix of pine trees, rocks, short punchy climbs, and a short flat section.

There is a short two mile section north of the parking area that is quite fun. It's mostly rolling hills and small rocky/sandy/rooted climbs that will get your legs moving and your heart beating. It starts and ends at the parking area.

Have fun!

Fun trail and can be easy or hard as you want with the multiple short cuts. Even though the trail is separated by the parking lot, the complete trail is considered 14 miles and 1 loop. Jul 10, 2014

Is the description above the order for the Yellow clockwise experience or the Orange anti-clockwork experience? I guess I'll find out on race day (yellow) :) Apr 25, 2018

The description is for the Orange (counter clockwise) direction. When that was written the trail was no bi-directional. Apr 26, 2018
