Description

Jibe is moderately technical singletrack starting next to the bottom of the T-bar line on the north side of the ski area. It climbs a couple hundred feet over a half mile and then heads back up the T-bar line briefly before going left (south) across the ski slopes towards 22 Tacks and the connector trail to the Ragged Mountain Preserve. Jibe is the most popular singletrack biking trail but is also enjoyed by hikers and dog walkers.

Most routes up the mountain start with this trail. It starts off easy, but several of the switchbacks after the initial ones will challenge riders with off-camber roots and rocks. The second part of the trail flows a little bit more and has very little vertical, although you never fully escape rocks, roots and hills on a trail network built on a ski mountain.

This is part of the "Race Course" climb, which starts with the first half of Jibe, continues on most of Keelhaul, and finishes with Spanker in its entirety.
