“A chunky descent with rock faces and exposure.”— Eric Ashley
At the bottom of Pop Rocks you can take a right onto Scooby Snacks (a short connector trail) and if you follow the road down a little ways you can link into the Esmeralda Trail.
Pop Rocks embraces the natural rock formations along the South Ridge on Beacon Hill. Nature's rock goodness has been augmented with even more chunk along the way. Although it's an intermediate trail, Pop Rocks has lots of advanced options like drops and steep rock faces. It even has an optional step-up below the Gnarwhal (large rock face).
Best ridden once to scope things out and then keep coming back to smash the rocks and boulders.
Caution: a portion of the trail crosses a rock slab with a steep cliff drop to the side.
