“A tight winding singletrack that cuts through scrub oaks, ending with a doubletrack climb.”— Craig Fowler

Off the left of Monte Carlo, Christmas Tree climbs steadily from start to finish. The beginning is tight and winding with lots of turns and dips that require small efforts to keep the front tire rolling over the multiple of rocks that make up the tread.
About 2/3's up the trail, it turns onto an old road. At this point, the majority of the climbing starts. That said, it's not overly steep.
As you near the top you'll make a few soft turns followed by a 90 degree right hand turn, followed by one last pitch. Once over this last pitch you'll be at the start of North Porcupine and end of South Porcupine. The choice is yours where you go from here!
Christmas Tree is a multi directional trail.
