Trail shared by William Ganis

A challenging loop with steep valleys that G-outs at the bottom. This trail's flow only works at speed.

Description

The trail starts at the top of the Advanced Access Trail with a drop down—the trail then crosses under a wooden bridge and enters a quick climb. From here the trail flows into three "ugly" jumps and then follows atop some ridges of strip-mining spoils.

Riders follow a steep drop to the right, and the trail skirts the shores of two small lakes. Bikers then climb into a section punctuated by some steep drops (saddles, G-outs) with physics taking them from the tops of one small ridge to the next. A particularly fun section involves banking to-and-fro across the walls (not bench cut) of two small ridges.

MTBers then come across a rock garden and then the biggest of the saddles that has another short-but-tough rock garden at the top of the return hill. Ride or slide down to the trail and another climb on rockier, narrow, off-camber track, two smaller saddles and a ride across an over/under wooden bridge/drop feature closes out the loop, entering into the flowing Zulu Trail exit that after a sharp right and squeeze between two trees eventually hooks up with the KA-BAR Trail.
