Overview

Description

For those looking for a close, but more technical ride, Providence Canyon is your option. This is for the more technically adept rider as the trail is steep and rocky. The road leads right to the top of the trail also leaving the option for a shuttle.

Once parked in the parking lot at the beginning of the dirt road, ride up the road and look carefully for a wooden bridge on the right crossing over the river (Be careful not to miss it, it's hidden pretty well).

This trail is a steep one, with a few technical climbs through rocky sections. At the section with the wooden walkways through a campground, there are two options. Left will take you on the normal route with the same continuing climb up to the top where it shoots you out at a gravel road. Right will take you on a section called B.Js (named after the local who built it). B.Js is a newly designed section off the normal route.

Once you reach the gravel road at the top, you have the option to do the Outlaw loop, or turn around and head for home. The Outlaw loop is a short 5 min section with dips and rollers through small ravines and dry creek beds that leads back to the top of the gravel road. Look closely for the loop on the opposite side on the road on the corner (hard to spot at first, but a fun quick loop!).

Choose to descend either the normal route, or down B.Js. B.Js is a very tight turned, and burmed out section that makes for an awesome descent. Most riders take the normal route to the top, and B.Js down to not interrupt the downhill traffic. A very fast run, just make sure you watch for the roller towards the bottom. Its notorious for breaking collarbones after kicking the rider off the bike.
