“Tight, off-camber trail with lots of texture. A challenging trail with old-school flavor.
— Leslie Kehmeier
Off Grade is a long-ish route that traverses the western side of the South Marquette Trails. The trail crosses multiple downhill trails so beware of other riders.
The trail starts from the upper end of Pipe Dreams
through a tight corridor with a slight descent to the first two expert line intersections. From there, ride on the contour of a basin and then ramble through a section littered with round rocks.
From here, Off Grade starts its continuous hillside descent over rocky and rooty off-camber trail.
Towards the bottom of the route, the trail crosses under Down Dogger
before finishing at the eastern end of Carp Eh Diem
