A classic in Copper Harbor; a rowdy and fun experience.

Description [Suggest Changes]

Red Trail is one of the classics in Copper Harbor. It's rowdy and fun with plenty of fast sections and technical challenges.

The trail starts on the level and pedals a bit uphill before the top end series of short gradual downs and ups. From there, Red Trail transitions to a long bit of downhill. As your speed increases, the trail texture and obstacles also change - expect some quicks turns, a few off-camber and crumbly drops and some trees to navigate around.

The upper third ends as you descend a tight switchback into a small narrow passage with steep rocky slopes on either side. Stay left, past the intersection with Dancing Bear, and continue descending through a straight and tight tree corridor.

This ends at a steep and abrupt short climb over a root web to a big tree. From here, the trail throws some increased technical challenges your way. There are more up and downs punctuated by roots rock slabs and a narrow bridge crossing.

After the last root-laden technical descent, the trail rolls past a small wetland and then creeps out past the intersection with Mango to the terminus at Manganese Road.
