Description

This is one of the few true singletracks trails in the park. Very technical and twisty but a lot of fun, it was built by Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates when the park was created.

If you can ride it end to end without dabbing, your tech skills are way up there. There's no exposure, just lots of strength and balance moves. It's very pretty as it winds through the woods and meadows.

It can be ridden in either direction as part of the Blackmer loop.

Fun, technical ride that keeps things interesting. The map has you going from south to north but going the opposite direction would be better.
