“A short, fun extension of G-Whiz.
— Ryan Fids
Legend has it that a cat was seen from this trail, hence it's name. This trail goes great in both directions and is used often when riding any configuration of loops in the Rifle system. This description is from the end of G-Whiz
. When G-Whiz
comes to an end at a small 4x4 road, go straight across to pick up Puma.
Puma will contour to the right around a small hill and then roll up and down towards the BLM parking lot. A quick turn left will take the rider past the crux of the ride - a short, exposed section across some ancient-looking dirt. After the exposure, riders can choose to go left through the squeezing boulders for a technical challenge (goes easier coming back down than going up) or stay right for the easier option. The trail then comes to a fenceline and hairpins right. Go over a fun, rocky section into the creek bed and pop back out on a steep 10' climb back to the road.
