Trail shared by Dustin Urban

One of the premier technical sections of the KC metro trails.

Features -none-

Takes 24-48 hours to dry after rain. Only ride when frozen in the winter.

Description

This is one of the best trails KC has to offer. It can be ridden either direction and is very technically difficult. Don't let the elevation gain fool you as the place is literally littered with rock ledges, steep ups, roots, slick rock, and drops. It's a total body workout and when combined with some of the other technical trails in this park you'll get quite the punishing ride.

It was fun I couldn't imagine doing this trail on a hardtail. I got my damn teeth rattled good and hard that's for sure. 6.4mi

I have never been more sore after a (non-wipeout) ride. I'm not even talking about my legs. A technical masterpiece! May 7, 2016
