Description

Trails within this area are built in a progressive stacked loop manner, meaning the trails nearest the bottom of the hill, lodge, and parking area are the easiest and they 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 fun to it all.

Like the Lodge Loop, the Gladiator Loop parallels the Gladiator Creek and road, only farther up the valley. Its grades are also a little steeper and corners are a bit tighter, adding to the challenge and fun factors. It can be done, and is equally as fun, in either direction.

At the north end of the loop where it crosses the creek and road, there are a few other signs here for other users (hiking and x-country skiing) that might be confusing. Just look for the wooden signs that are like the other MTB trail signs, almost directly across the road.
