Description

Ride: From the east parking lot you'll find the entrance to the trail and kiosk off the concrete trail on the east side of the lot. "Slippery when wet" is the first section you hit. You are presented with off camber flow as you descend to the creek where you are met with a bridge crossing with a small drop. As the name suggests tread carefully during dewy or damp conditions. You then travel north through a meadow dotted with a few pine trees and cross a gravel access road. You now enter Monarch pass that takes you on a trek through tight singletrack over small bridges and log overs.

The trail then crosses the concrete walking trail (please be aware and courteous of other trail users) and heads straight ahead on Titan Twist. Follow this flowy section until you exit onto a gravel doubletrack. Follow this along to the right until you see the entrance to the Superbowl. The Superbowl is a section of trail that loops around the outer rim of a literal dirt bowl then cuts tight back around the upper half after a short technical uphill root climb. The trail then exits to the doubletrack and flows west until the entrance to the Outback arises. This section of trail follows the western side of the lake, first under or around the Turtle, over a narrow zigzag bridge then loops back for fast, flowy, fun return on Straight Shooting! Exit back onto the doubletrack you just traveled and take the first right and continue on until you come to the trees again.

Welcome to Whiplash! The name says it all, as you negotiate the very tight trail through and between handlebar catching, finger scraping saplings. Exiting Whiplash you are presented with three quick splitting off options: The first with a steep roll and log ride. The second cuts left, over a 1 ft drop and over a couple fun hops. The third bypasses the first two and rides higher on the creek bank , rejoining the two lower options near where the trail passes close to the concrete path. The trail continues on to a fun and/or ride around jump, over a log pile and then cuts right back on itself skirting the concrete trail and then across back to Monarch pass.

Crossing the gravel access road again follow The Hound on a fast sprint back to the parking lot throwing a small rock garden and a two steep ups at you before you exit just south of the entrance.
