Description

The Scrappy Mountain Section is blazed in Blue. This section has the most elevation gain of all the Syllamo loops. It's recommended to ride this trail in the clockwise direction.

This route has frequent steep pitches with large elevation changes and long, difficult, sustained climbs. It includes more frequent sections of very difficult ascents and descents requiring constant bike control to avoid injury. The trail surface requires advanced technical skills to negotiate numerous difficult rocky obstacles. Thus, this section is the toughest of the Syllamo loops both physically and technically.

The Stairway to Heaven makes a fun technical challenge along the Scrappy Mountain Loop.

A nice open trail area just off hwy. 5  There is a restroom, water, and a good place to take a break at the parking area not far from where this shot was taken.  A local timber management person told me to bring good tick spray for the warm season.
