Overview

This route features two of the longer downhills with jump lines at Candlers Mountain, including The Playground, Part of Horton's Loop, and Psycho-Path connected by fire roads.

Need to Know

You can roll the jumps if necessary! The top of Psycho-Path has multiple line options, so scope them out first.

Description

Begin at the Snowflex parking lot and head out on the Monogram Road towards the big LU. Head up to the Playground Trail and bomb down the flow line. Cross the fire road and continue down the smaller tabletops and rocky Horton's Loop downhill to the bottom. Cross a log pile on the left at the bottom of Horton's Loop and follow Oaks Way until you can climb Killer Bees on the left across a gorgeous wooden bridge.

Climb this trail and take a left on the fire road. Look for an unsigned trail on the right, which is the extension of Killer Bees. Climb this briefly and turn left onto Idiot's Run for a quick downhill. Look for the fire road again on the left. Turn right onto Valley View Rd. and ride until you reach a gate. Pass through the gate and turn left, climbing steeply to the top of the LU monogram.

Follow the fenceline to find Psycho-Path and head down, choosing from optional lines. At the next fire road intersection, turn left and look for Psycho-Path again on the right (may be unsigned but it's the next trail). Continue down (optional drop feature about halfway down on the left), cross a small bridge and head left on Deer Trail.

This trail may be wet! Cross a few bridges until you get to a gate just after a large berm on the fire road, head left after gate onto Champion Road for a long easy fire road climb. Pass through gate at Monogram Road and turn sharp left for an optional quick roll on 1971 if you want to cut off some fire road and use singletrack instead. At the end of this, turn left on Monogram Road to return to parking lot.

Great trail, very technical at times, tough climbs, and good flow. The jump tracks are super fun. Great mix of everything
