An excellent XC trail with great climbing rhythm or a twisting and turning descent.

Sandpoint watershed.

Description

Enter from the 4th switchback on Schweitzer Mtn Rd. or from the Roundabout parking area.

The top is a new trail with wide tread and banked turns while the lower section is classic singletrack that has been improved with bridges and de-rooted tread. The big trees and babbling creek make this a great piece of the Schweitzer Basin system.

This is one of the best trails when it's hot and dusty everywhere else.

The Pend Oreille Pedalers have a written agreement with the City of Sandpoint to maintain this trail.

Great trail, if your looking for a pedal, with small bits of fun. Personally I would take the DH trail for this section, but, I'm not a pedaller.

Nice downhill. A little beat up, but fast and fun to shuttle

This is just one of the many great trails at Schwitzer Resort. Park 2/3 of the way up at the round about or take the shuttle up from the lot at the base. In my opinion, the $5 for a lift is better than a long pavement climb with traffic, and finishing a ride with a long, flowing DH is a great way to go out. Wherever you park there is some climbing if you want it. Many of the climbs are a grunt but if you survive you'll be treated to rippin' fun and burmed downhills. Remember to look for the nice little kickers along the way. Jul 28, 2015
