Description

This short trail that packs a punch. Enjoy it as a challenging climb or technical, steep descent. When descending be ready for tight switchbacks, an armored rock slide, and many other optional lines and drops. Be ready to get off the bike inspect some of the features the first time down, but don't be afraid, all the features ride well and are a blast to ride.

This trail is the preferred way down as that is how it was designed back in 2012 when Singletrack Trails Inc. completed building this trail. With that in mind, it is open to users in both directions, and is a good challenge of a climb to clean. For the mere mortals try taking 91 Gigawatt back up to the reflector as it climbs much better than Root Canal.

The trail intersects with Renegade Trail (take that back towards 91 Gigawatt or over to the west side of Rattlesnake Rim) and Rocky River (which can be taken over to Barrel Roll or cut out in the middle and link up with the East side of Rattlesnake Rim).
