Description

Elmer's is a highly preferred downhill trail and is not meant to be a climbing trail to access World's Greatest. To access World's Greatest, climb Abrams Ridge.

There is heavy downhill traffic on Elmer's with many blind corners and is unsafe to climb. If you do climb, please stay on your toes for downhill traffic. However, at the top, you are essentially in no man's land, absolutely do not want to climb World's Greatest and end up going down, losing elevation, and then climbing Tick Alley which is a horrendous and brutal climb.

Elmers is a super fast, fun, and flowy downhill after riding down World's Greatest. Enjoy the small berms and turns and hold on to the speed you get coming down!
