Intermediate

A better climbing alternative than the two-track, Red Light District, and a really fast downhill.

Description

Rock Man, named after the sculpture the Trail Source boys left for us, is the best climbing alternative when approaching the summit of the ridge from the south. As we like to say, it gets "punchy" in spots, but is far better than the two-track. But, this "punchiness" makes it a real ripper when going downhill.

This machine-built trail was added to the system in April 2016. From the summit, you can get onto this trail from shortly into Johnny's G's before you start descending. It also branches off of Prickly Pear at about the point the trail summits.

The very top of Rock Man and the entire Beck Lake trail system. Looking at Rattlesnake mountain and the Outlaw trail system.

The "Rock Man" goes through many iterations as the winds he is exposed to take their toll. The trail wraps around the knob he stands guard over.

You have a great 360 degree view from this high point. This image is from the South to NW. It is the connector of "Red Light District" and "Oly's".

The trail circles the highpoint the Rockman occupies. The Rockman trail is in the background and runs to the highest point in the Beck Lake trail network.
