More rocky, slightly technical, cerebral riding than the beginner section of this trail.

Matt Goodman

Overview

Description

This leg offers many rough bedrock traverses, berms, and features. It also offers some of the best views of any local trail. The terrain is relatively rough, but the trail is wide with has smooth flowing corners.

It's definitely rideable for people with some experience, but it's probably a little too challenging for most true novices. Advanced riders will eat it up and there are plenty of optional features to make things even more difficult.

The main line has no drops but many optional B lines exist, and most of these drops are 'gated' - watch for stones marking both sides of the line. Most are 1'-2,' but at least one drop, near the eastern end, is 3'+.

If you're not that keen, the main trail always rolls around these features.

Tons of line choices make this a crowd pleaser. Exposed bedrock creates most of the riding surface. 2.5mi

Fun trail, really fun. Could use some signs though for the B line sections. Rocks can be tough to see in late summer vegetation. Could also use some signs asking people to not create shortcuts when doing the fun sections of trail over and over again. This system is littered with social trails like this and some of them are pretty well established and can cause those unfamiliar with the system to get mixed up. Sep 8, 2015
