Trail shared by Kalem Lenard

A super fun, flowy trail that is mostly intermediate with some technical side features.

Description

Starting at the end of BLM Road #5941B, this section of Anticline takes off on your right. You'll quickly find yourself grinning ear to ear as you flow through rock outcrops and hit the fun side features. As this trail ages I could see the rating getting bumped up to a 5 star. You'll get dumped out onto a two-track road, follow this left and after only a short distance you'll see it pick back up again on your right. Keep cruising through the pinyon/juniper trees until you tie in with Tectonic Shift.

After crossing BLM Road #5941B, Anticline is a great rolling singletrack. There are some steep portions, but overall it's nothing that an intermediate rider can't handle. Use this trail to avoid the old 2-track road. Watch out for optional rock move lines, as these are some of the most technical portions of the trail.

Anticline ends a little ways up Unconformity and provides access to the bottom of Fire Canyon. Use this part of the trail to add diversity to loops and connect over to BLM Road #5941B and the continuation of Anticline.

Night ride! Look for a cool rock ride going CW where it looks like you should split two narrow rocks.
