Trail shared by Ken Palagyi

A very fun and VERY technical alternate trail option of Palm Canyon Trail (from Springcrest).

Description

Be sure to let your brakes and suspension cool down before you start down this little gem. There's a short climb before the fun begins. The upper section is a warm up of technical rock gardens, switchbacks, and fast singletrack. The coup de grace is a fairly steep but VERY rocky and technical section of switchbacks and chutes. A perfect finish for an epic ride.

This trail is a great option if you found that you don't have the legs to finish Dunn Road Trail (from Springcrest) but don't want to bailout down Dunn Rd.

First time ride. Nice finish for PCE...preferred the less elevation than White Horse to Goat Trails, and the technical is pretty sketchy in spots.
