Description

This trail can be done both clockwise and counter-clockwise, though I prefer it clockwise as you can ride the radio tower downhill, which is a blast. Be prepared for some steep climbing in certain sections.

Great ride when you combine Sidewinder and Ridgeline trail. Hard steep climbs but the downhill is fast and worth the climb. Can't wait to do it again. May 11, 2017
