“A shorter alternative route to Trail 17 with more sustained climbing.”
— Phil Waidner
Trails are closed to the public, except for New River Bicycle Union
members during certain periods. Check out the NRBU calendar for open riding days here
. Riders must also have a current waiver on file with SBR.
This shorter alternative route to Trail 17
is a great option for those who want the fastest possible route to High Gear. With more sustained climbing than Trail 17
, this is a bit of a grunt, and you'll be working your way up the same moderate grade all the way up to High Gear.
This is the fastest route to the top from the parking area. Watch out for hikers crossing the trail.
