Description

A fast and flowy singletrack that is not too steep or technical. The top starts from the Central Ridge Trail/Shane's Loop intersection and it ends in the middle of the Ridge Crest Trail. Ridge to Rivers improved this trail in Summer '21 to make it a great little beginner's downhill with bermed turns, water bars that can be jumped or rolled, and some minor rock features. It is now downhill only (from the Shane's Trail / Central Ridge Trail intersection down to Ridge Crest #20 ).

Ride this one in the springtime when the wildflowers are blooming and you won't be able to avoid and ear to ear grin.
