A great way to ride off the top of Mammoth Mountain if you've got the skills...

Overview

You need a Bike Park pass to ride the gondola for access to this trail.

Description

This trail offers up some technical rock gardens, fast pumice-laden downhills, and numerous switchbacks. Once you're used to sliding/drifting through the pumice and sand, this trail is a blast. Beware, as the rock gardens come up fast and furious and have been known to taco many a rim. Many of the switchbacks are cliffside with great exposure risk, so ride within your ability. The upper section is the most technical and advanced, but it also offers up the best views of the Mammoth Crest, Lakes Basin, and the town of Mammoth.

You can also cut into the lower portion from Bridge the Gap or Lincoln Express if you don't want to ride the whole thing from the top. You zig zag all the way down Lincoln Mountain until the trail ends at the junction with Manzanita and Paper Route. From here, there are many options back to the bike shuttle or into town. Enjoy!!
