The Festival Trail follows the ridgeline of Narrowback Mountain. If you're riding the Narrowback Mountain Loop
, take this trail South to North from the intersection of Narrowback Trail
and Tower Trail
. It's good both ways, but probably flows best in this direction. Heading this way, you'll end up on Narrowback Road (FSR 536).
The ridgeline section is great, and comes without long steep climbs or hike-a-bikes. It does have a variety of rocky sections.
After a sharp righthand berm on the northernmost end, the last .6 mi has a wider corridor that has been tightened converted from an old road bed.
