A spicy trail perched above Crystal Reservoir

Description

Cliffhanger is a hair-raising experience that connects Canyons with Volin Trailhead. Expect narrow singletrack, exposure and a mandatory hike-a-bike.

Starting from Canyons just below Middle Kingdom, Cliffhanger bears right at an intersection. The trail stays tucked below the horizon and high above Crystal Reservoir. Following the contour, the route pass through a few open meadows before traversing a rocky ledge that includes a series of drops that require walking the bike.

Stay right at the south end of the trail to access Volin Trailhead.
