Trail shared by Lance Buck

A joyride through the trees.

Features -none-

Family Friendly Tons of big berm corners that loop through the trees. This will work your bike handling skills.

Description

Start at the intermediate parking area on Fountain Place Road, just past the bridge. It starts just like the Corral Trail #18E14 but look for a fork in the first 100 yards. Stay to the right, go slightly uphill and across some rocks. Soon the trail rolls over the ridge and forty-some, big 180-degree plus hairpin, switchbacks lower you down the hillside.

The trail cuts tightly between the trees and often folds almost back on itself. It is a delight to test your skills on. Like no other trail you'll ever ride!
