A very technical descent that could put a smile on your face! The top half was re-routed in 2017 to be more rideable

Need to Know

The lower section is fairly tough to climb or descend

Description

This would be a VERY difficult climb.

Some riders will agree that Blue Ribbon is a very fun way to end a ride on this trail system.

It's rideable by most intermediate/advanced riders except for a few walkable sections. For more advanced riders, there are tons of small drops, rock launch ramps, and technical moves to make this a highlight of your entire ride here.

The upper half of the trail where it intersects with Skeeter's Ridge Trail and Roller Coaster was re-routed in 2017 and is now an easy climb to access Mushroom Rock and the top of Red Hill.

Consider the lower half a Black Diamond descent (few ride this in uphill direction) and the upper half a Blue Square climb / two-way trail. Jul 27, 2018
