Description

The very first time I road Crack Pipe was one of my first rides back after recovering from an injury sustained while riding. When we road up to the start of the trail, my friend told me "If you were going to hurt yourself somewhere on this ride, it would be here." Not exactly comforting.

Crack Pipe definitely features some tougher riding, but it's fairly approachable. Be careful, but don't be put off.

Crack Pipe starts at the top of the hill on Fenton Road. Take a right off the fire road and enter the woods. The trail rolls downhill for a ways, features steep sections, tight turns, rock gardens and the occasional modest drop. The biggest challenge is the sustained nature of the difficulty, if you falter, it may be a challenge to get back on the bike again.

After descending, the trail climbs again for a ways, rolling uphill towards one last descent.

About two thirds of the way through the trail is the namesake obstacle, The Crack Pipe. The Crack Pipe is a largish drop, bigger than 15 inches with a difficult approach. There is a ride around if you're not up for it. The crack pipe is still tough, but I'm told that in years gone by, before erosion toned it down it was quite a difficult stunt.

Anyway, after The Crack Pipe, the rest of the ride seems easy, and its just a roll downhill to rejoin Fenton Road at the end of the trail.
