Description

The Dakota Ridge Trail is a technical trail that follows along the top of the Dakota Ridge formation. Along the way, you'll find many rocks and drops, as the sandstone often weathers in stair-step like features. Be warned, there is one extremely steep portion that riders will need to portage. Luckily the section is short! This trail is a screaming fast descent, so let off those brake levers!
