All Clear 13 days ago
Dry: I road the trail 2 days ago and it was fast and plenty of grip. Just let go of the brakes and go for it. Perfect History

Getting forecast...

This trail provides great views and some high altitude exposure riding in the 18 Road region.

Overview

Open 5/1 to 11/30.

Description

This trail can be ridden in either direction.

There are two access points off of Coal Creek Canyon / Edge Loop. The first (West) access starts with a grueling climb (read: hike). To bypass this climb, continue on the Edge Loop until you get to the second clearly marked trail access.

The ride has no sustained climbs, but does gain elevation east to west and drops west to east. There are no sustained steep climbs, but a number of punchy short climbs, tight turns, sandy washes, and areas of technical/rocky terrain. If riding from the east access on the Edge Loop, I recommend riding to the lookout before the extremely steep/loose descent (descending the grueling climb mentioned earlier) and flip it back west to east, finishing with a long descent down Coal Creek Canyon / Edge Loop.

If riding the Edge loop (clockwise), this offers a nice detour of singletrack (and, of course, that grueling climb).

The trail is really mostly intermediate. There are a few scattered rock tech moves that are easily walked through, for the true intermediate rider. 14.5mi

Rode eMTB west to east. First hill took all I had to get up and still need to push in a couple places. Is a nice trail and plenty challenging for my skill level. More side hill exposure than expected. Recommend riding a couple days after a good rain when the sand is firmed up. Sunday morning ride, encountered two other riders going east to west. Aug 27, 2017
