Description

The Notch is a quick way to get back to the main parking area after riding the Beck's descent. Look for a doubletrack directly across from the end of Beck's across from Road 3525. You'll see a sign here for The Notch.

Ride up this doubletrack and begin a short fun ascent on some tricky slickrock. Find the natural line through the rock and you'll come to a "notch" through the ridge. After riding across the ridge you'll begin a fun, steep, technical descent back to the bottom of Jack's Trail and Collarbone Alley.

As much of a mental challenge as actual technical riding.
