Description

The fun flowy singletrack starts right from the lower trailhead and connects with the Fire Canyon Trailhead. Most people take the right turn staying on Tectonic Shift for a longer and more fun ride. For a more direct route you can go straight onto Path of Least Resistance.

Staying right on Tectonic Shift and is the preferred trail option over Path of Least Resistance. A little ways in there are some fun small alternate drop lines while traveling east and a cool rock armored corner. Eventually, you'll pop out on the road and see where Tectonic Shift continues. Keep following this trail to the Fire Canyon Trailhead and Unconformity to keep off the road and away from the main cattle grazing area.
