Update

Fun and fast, a moto-whooped trail du jour!

Ryan Fids

Overview

Description

A Rifle classic! Used heavily by motos, so share nicely and work on your whoop game.

Access this trail at the top of Balanced Rock Trail and at the end of Whiskey Tango Express. There is a trail sign that marks this as a part of the moto Loop 3 network. This trail continues to traverse along the rim of Hubbard Mesa continuing your journey from Whiskey Tango Express. It's good times and fast almost the entire way with one short, punchy climb near the beginning of the trail.

You can go pretty fast on this trail, but the moto whoops slow you down from time to time. Smile and enjoy it, this is the essence of Rifle riding! Nothing really to point out on this trail, there are some rocky outcroppings here and there but just point it, pedal, and fly. It's all good on Faceplant!
