“Big brother to Evolution with more steeps and bigger features.”
— Eric Ashley
Galbraith Mountain is privately owned but trails are created and maintained by WMBC. Galbraith is open to non-motorized users except for hunting and fishing. The area is an ongoing site for logging operations so visitors should be on the lookout for temporary trail closures. Trails are multi-use; expect traffic in both directions and yield to hikers and equestrian users.
Scorpion is the more difficult route down from the summit of Galbraith. Like Evolution
, it sports a mix of ladders, drops, and jumps, but the features on Scorpion are steeper, narrower, and bigger.
The top half carries speed smoothly despite two steep sections. The bottom half is more awkward with enough elevation changes to make a consistent rhythm difficult.
Notable features include the large ladder drop at the start, some tricky ladder-to-log rides, and an optional suspension bridge. Of course there is more to see, including the new spur which is mostly rolling jumps at the moment.
