“A flow trail over pine needles that culminates in berms and rollers.”
— Jerry Hicks
Another must-ride on the Gurney Lane trail system, Salsa is an easy climb before it begins its descent amid berms and rollers. Spanning from Birmingham all the way back to the trail intersection Widget, Salsa flows from one corner to the next for what feels like forever but, unfortunately, is not.
This trail is another of the three machine-built trails added during the summer of 2015. Just like the other two trails that consist of machine-built sections, Coaster
, Salsa's machine-built portion feels like its own separate ride from the rest of the trail. After riding long, shallow turns on the ridge, the trail starts traversing downhill and is then non-stop berm and roller riding.
This section features a level climbing line hugging a tree with a berm perched above a rock for the downhill, as well as a series of three large rollers in a row. This trail will make you fall in love with mountain biking all over again.
