The route is great mix of rowdy and rough sections in addition to some speed, flow and fun.
Need to Know
The soils here are unique. When it's dry it can be quite dusty and loose. If it rains, it may not be rideable. Check conditions before you ride.
This is where the downhill and the fun starts.
Ken A (also sometimes referred to as a part of Dirt Surfer (170)) provides a narrow ribbon of singletrack littered with embedded rocks. The more than 1.5 mile-descent is at a surprisingly good grade and little pedaling is required to keep a fun pace.
Along the way, you'll make a crossing over Road 2400, ride/jump over an angled log that sneaks up on you, and, at the finish, climb your way out of a steep gully. The rest of the time on this trail is spent finding flow and picking lines, and of course, smiling.
Transition right into Dirt Surfer (170) as you cross over Road 1009.
Dirt Surfer (170) really delivers the high speed on this cheerful section of singletrack. The minimal tech and flowing trail stretching ahead invite riders to pump deep and pedal strong as they chase a great time. A few small tables and optional booters add some wheels up flavor to round out the goodness.
Continue on Dirt Surfer (172) to a busy intersection with Riordan Hill Road. You're looking for Hybrid (140), across the road and to your left slightly.
Hybrid is another moto-legal singletrack running along the ridge all the way to the Post Flats Staging Area. The trail is largely comprised of narrow singletrack with shallow berms. Hybrid is used both as a descending and ascending route so be aware, especially on the more exposed areas.
At the lower end of the route, stay left on Trail #115L and follow to the Post Flats staging area.
Turn right onto Post Canyon Road #1400 and descend to the bottom at Seven Bridges staging area.
