Lots of exposed rock - cobbles, bedrock, and large limestone chunks - enjoy!

Overview

Description

MoMBA’s advanced section, Hawk’s Lair has some of the best rock riding in the state. Exposed by the construction of the nearby Huffman Dam in the 1920s, the rocks at Hawk’s Lair come in many different forms: from cobble to exposed bedrock in the Moonscape to large limestone boulders up on the Hawk’s Lair ridge. But that’s not all. This tricky loop gains 106 feet of elevation in less than 1 mile and sports Hamilton Ravine, a 35-foot deep chasm crossed by a 45-foot fiber polymer bridge and The Spiral, where the trail climbs along a very steep, wooded cliff.
Riding counterclockwise out of Wild West Junction, Hawk’s Lair begins with a climb before descending through tight technical turns. The Talon offers some highly advanced features for the most skilled riders. A fun downhill if ridden counter-clockwise and a technical climb if ridden clockwise. Either way is a thrill.
