Description

South to North: You'll start on this singletrack after a very brief 30-yard ride along an old power line road, so just be aware that the sign appears to point onto the power line road. The trail goes left into a narrow section of woods, so just be looking for it.

Once onto the trail, you immediately climb up a little rocky section, a few switchbacks, and hit Grosvenor Rd. Cross over, and go up an incline and hit a nice little technical rock section that takes some skill to clean. This leads you to a fairly steep climb up some sharp switchbacks.

Once at the top, the trail has some long, straight sections that have some nice rollers and berms that provide a respite from the overall ascent of this connecting trail. There are a handful of places to get airborne along the way as well.

Once you cross Bedford Ln., you start a very sharp descent with some very narrow-radius berms. About halfway down, you'll encounter a few little rollers and jumps on the way down to Hwy 340 (Lancashire). Cross over, and you'll "T" into the Back 40 Loop: Complete Ride once again.

North to South: Starting from the Back 40 Loop, make a short climb up and over Hwy 340 (Lancashire), and climb up to Bedford Ln. Dropping in off Bedford Ln, you'll descend down and around a few narrow switchbacks, which give way to a nice, flowing section of trail with some fun small rollers. That continues along the ridge until you get to a steeper pitch, and you can carry some serious speed down some fairly long straight sections of trail with some rollers and short gap jumps (all can be rolled).

You end with a few bermed switchbacks leading down to Grosvenor, and then cross over to a short, rocky descent to complete the section, ending up at Traflagar Rd.
