Description

The West Highland Valley Trail is a fast, relatively non-technical trail. It can get sandy later in the year, so stay on point as I've seen more than one rider wash out and lose control in this section of trail. There are also some large watershed berms in here that make great kickers, but some will throw your front end forward, so keep your weight back.

Be wary, this section can also have a lot of large overgrowth that can make following the trail difficult. West Highland Valley has great sightlines, but it can become tricky at speed. There's more than one blind corner, so keep your speed in check the first few times you ride it. If you want to ride some of the other trails in the Wilderness Management Area, but don't feel like putting yourself on the pain train, this is the easiest climb providing access to the upper sections of trail.
