“A better climbing alternative than the two-track, Red Light District, and a really fast downhill.”
— John Gallagher
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.
