“A big backcountry ride leading to the top of an open ridge and a fast technical downhill return.”— Brian Coop
Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown
The climb on Chucksney Mountain Trail #3306 is steep, but not technical. The downhill on Grasshopper Mountain Trail #3569 is fast and flowy, but it's punctuated by gnarly rock gardens and a couple rocky creek crossings.
Need to Know
Head right, following the Chucksney Mountain Trail #3306, and settle in for the climb. Just keep on climbing until you reach the top of the ridge where you'll break out of the trees for some amazing views.
Take a break at the top and get ready for one sweet downhill. As you head across the meadow you won't lose much elevation, but once you head back into the trees it starts heading downhill. Keep your speed under control because you tee into Grasshopper Mountain Trail #3569 pretty quickly, then take a left for miles of tight technical downhill all the way back to the Box Canyon Trail #3660 intersection.
Take a right and you've got another 2 miles and 1,000' of smoother singletrack downhill to the trailhead.
