Some relatively technical climbing and descending along a beautiful, shaded, forest trail.

Overview

Description

Megawatt is one of the more technical rides in the Racoon Mountain trail system and has several short, challenging, climbs, but the reward is worth the effort as the trail covers a beautiful, and typically quieter, section of the trail system.

Personally, I find Megawatt to be easier than Laurel Point. Megawatt has a few pretty big, knarly rock areas to clear while Laurel Point is almost non-stop medium rock gardens. If you are a solid/upper intermediate rider that is hesitant to ride Megawatt due to the black diamond rating, give it a try. If you can do Laurel Point (even walking through a few areas), you can ride 95% of Megawatt. Sep 6, 2016
