“A short ride that combines a leg burning climb with fast fun downhill.
— Justin Terry
A great way to get in a tough workout and some fun downhill when you don't have a lot of time.
The biggest drawback is the number of hikers.
Need to Know
Unless you have legs of steel, ride this trail in the counter-clockwise direction.
An awesome little piece of trail that can be ridden for multiple laps. The trail starts with an easy warm up as you head out on a gravel path for just over a mile. After the path, a short hike-a-bike section takes you through a creek bed and over some large rocks. On the other side of the creek the climb begins, and it's a leg burner. Averaging roughly 13% the climb covers just under a mile and a half as it works its way up to just over 2,400 feet (~840 feet gain). There is a killer section of switchbacks of the climb but no other technical features on the way up.
From the top there's a short jaunt across the summit before the heading down the other side. The upper section is mostly fun turns with flat(ish) sections connecting them. The middle section is two steep hills that bring you most of the way back down. The end is where the most fun is really. A fast, flowy section of wide singletrack with small jumps and berms to shred.
