Trail shared by Tom Robson

A rowdy and ever-changing trail that's well worth the brutal Doctor Gulch climb.

Description

Enter the dark, dank forest. This section is deep in a pine forest with roots and step ups galore. This area can be very damp, even when the rest of this ride is dry. This is well evidenced by the horse hoof marks imprinted on the trail.

Finally, at the top of the climb, the trail opens up to a beautiful meadow. This is a good spot for lunch, however, it doesn't have the best views along the trail (that would be the viewpoint along the road).

After taking a well-deserved break at the top of the climb, the trail dives onto very skinny, bermed singletrack. From the get-go, this trail throws some gnar your way. Be ready for rooty, rocky drops, and super fun corners to navigate.

This initial difficult section gives way to some very flowing trail that's surrounded by aspens. This section is just plain fast, fun, with a few very technical rock gardens thrown in for good measure.

At the end of this mostly non-technical portion, the trail tips upwards for the final time. The descent off this climb is the most technical portion of this trail. It's filled with tight switchbacks, loose sand, big rock drops, and fun optional lines.

Eventually, the trail terminates at the North Bank Campground. Be sure to take a chilling dip in the Taylor River after your ride!

Such a banger. Sooo many miles of DH. Smooth, rowdy, crazy fast and slow and technical. Classic of classics.

The Jedi Woods section of Doctor Park might be the most fun you can have on two wheels.
