Description

As soon as you leave River Trail the intermediate singletrack begins. Switchbacks, and a few rocky areas can be expected through the first bit of climbing and descending. During these first few sections you'll see several trails taking off and forking. Always take the one to the right to go towards Spring Hollow. Going left on any of these will take you back down to a trail running along the river. Take a right again at the second fork. This is where the climbing starts to pick up.

It gets steep pretty quickly and starts going in towards the canyon. Adequate tree coverage makes for a nice cool ride, and great dirt. The last climb to the slate field is a brutal one, and is what to expect the rest of the way to the top. It will be pretty obvious when you reach the slate field, as there are no trees, and many rocks.

For the sake of your sanity, you can turn around here to enjoy the fun downhill, or you can choose your fate and try to climb to the top. As I said, that last climb is just a taste of what the next 4 miles hold. Hike-a-bike will hold a whole new meaning in your life after this. But to those who conquer, we salute you.

This advanced trail is extremely steep and rocky which makes the downhill worth it in the end. After this slate field, there will be several sections where you'll walk your bike and grind up a few climbs. These conditions will continue for the next mile until you reach a second slate field. From here until the top the incline decreases and is easier to pedal. The trail then tops out onto a dirt road near Logan Peak.

On your way down, you'll see little traffic until you reach the first slate field you passed on your way up. While passing the second slate you field you passed on your way up, get ready for a gnarly, steep and rocky downhill. Hold on to your handlebars and let it rip. Follow the way you came down to the bottom of the singletrack and hook back onto the gravel path to get back to your car. You do have the option to shuttle this trail from the dirt road at the top as well.
