Description

Grind your way up Storm Peak Challenge and you'll be rewarded with the amazing descent that is Pete's Wicked Trail. Pete's starts as doubletrack and turns into skinny singletrack at the intersection with Cathy's Cutoff. Be sure to stay left at this intersection.

The first section of singletrack is the most difficult - featuring boulders and babyhead rock drops. Pick your line carefully as even the most experienced riders will find this difficult.

After some rolling hills and one more technical spot approximately .5mi further down the trail, Pete's Wicked Trail leads into super-fast, serpentine singletrack. Open the throttle here and enjoy those turns! In Spring, the end of this descent might be a washed out, rocky, and wet creek bed from snowmelt. Whereas in late Summer/Fall it may be well-defined, dry singletrack.

Pete's Wicked Trail finishes with a steep, doubletrack climb from the Sunshine Express chairlift to Rendezvous Lodge (not in operation during Summer months). From Rendezvous you can access Sunshine Trail and Duster.
