Description

This trail was built specifically to connect a string of rock outcrops while keeping them challenging and fun. Most of the outcrops have ride-arounds, but it is worth the time to try them all. The first section is mostly flat, with just a few short uphills. It becomes steeper and switchbacks across the land, after crossing the Rock Garden Trail. There are places to ride up on some extended rock stretches for a real challenge. Also check out the drops along this route. They can be a blast to hit, at the right speed.
