Trails in this area are built in a progressive stacked loop manner, meaning the trails nearest the bottom of the hill, lodge, and parking lot are the easiest and progressively get more challenging the farther into the system you ride.
Most of the trails, although short, make up for that with a huge fun-factor built into them. The trails have been built narrow through the trees with a lot of grade reversals that act as jumps and booters. Plenty of high speed banked corners adorn the switchbacks and the builders have left in plenty of natural ‘B-line’ features that add to it all.
This is one that should be ridden down, from N to S. From its intersection with the Gladiator Loop
, it is a bit of a climb for the first half-mile, some of the grades here are a little steeper than other trails in the area. After a short flat at the top then the trail lives up to its name, fast and fun with big, sweeping banked corners and jumps. Continue up another short climb, head past some yurts, and then it’s ripping downward again all the way back to the lodge.
