Update

A fun, technical extension on G-Whiz.

Ryan Fids

Description

A rite of passage if you ride G-Whiz, you must take the Horseshoe! Another trail that rides well in both directions, although I prefer clockwise. If you ride CW, after a short bit of singletrack, you'll come to a challenging technical move between 2 giant "squeeze" boulders.

If you can make it through the boulders, then you'll encounter a short, steep, punchy climb that has a pretty significant rain gutter in the center. Once you gain the top, you'll ride some flowy singletrack over a series of rocks and boulders, curling around an area that almost looks like a meteor strike. Finally, you'll drop back onto G-Whiz to complete the trail.
