A favorite hot lap for technical rock junkies and suckers for punishment alike. Ride this loop clockwise for a smoother climb and super technical descent down Kaylor Ridge Trail (North) and 2000 Hours trails. Ride it counterclockwise for technical rock crawling on the climb and higher speed, flowing features on Laird's Downhill
and Laird's Nose.
Need to Know
Bring plenty of food and water for this mission of a hot lap.
Head north past the pond and hop on Laird's Nose for a solid warm-up climb to Upper Laird's Downhill
. Turn right onto the super technical, Kaylor Ridge Trail (North), and stay on the ridge until you reach Del Webb Drive. Cross the road onto 2000 Hours for a hair-raising descent. Cross the road again onto Berm Trail, then hang a left onto Lower Homestead
for a nice cool-down to the bottom.
Head up Lower Homestead
, Berm Trail, 2000 Hours (2K)
, and Kaylor Ridge Trail (North). It will get progressively more difficult and technical and will likely involve some hike-a-bike. Once you top out on Kaylor's Knob, you can enjoy some fun, high-speed descending on Upper Laird's Downhill
to Laird's Nose for some fun flow.
