Description

Probably one of the best trails in the valley. The riding is generally non-technical with just a few rocks.

Drive up #2 Canyon Road to where the pavement ends. If you don't have a high clearance vehicle start your ride here. Ride or drive up the dirt road through the first gate (normally open except in winter) to the second gate. Go around the second gate and climb approximately 100 yards looking for the trail that starts off to your right.

About 2/3 of the way to the top, you'll reach a section of doubletrack, continue to climb until the doubletrack merges back into a singletrack. Follow the singletrack all the way to the top. Turn around and go down!

Alternate route would be to stay on the doubletrack road all the way to the top of the ride. Slightly faster to get to the top of the ride but much less interesting.

For first timers, I believe this is a good trail to start on, good corners, good speed and a nice hike to the top. There are small technical sections but people who are just starting out like I am I highly recommend this trail to begin with.

For getting there you may need a AWD or 4WD vehicle to get to the trailhead. It's very rocky and very slow to drive up.
