Built after seeing the beautiful rock faces begging to be ridden just off the main trail. More singletrack was always the goal. Connecting to the Turkey trails and eventually the Broken Down Snowmobile trail, Grinder is best ridden in one direction (from Wandering Lynx Trail 1 towards Wandering Lynx Trail 2
) and is mostly uphill with tight rocky switchbacks eventually leading the exposed cliff edge and a rocky descent with a sharp left at the bottom.
One of the more difficult climbs at AF, this techy climb is a reward all in itself, but with some exposure and a fast, steep downhill section following the climb it's just awesome.
