A fantastic new singletrack trail winding its way up to a couple amazing vistas.

Lance Schaffer Jr.

Overview

In a state park, so $7 daily pass or annual pass required.

Description

This trail has a bit of everything - flowing track with berms, rocky obstacles (with a bypass trail for those that don't want to attempt the hardest part!), bumpy track through pines, and enough scenery at the outlooks to make any camera happy.

Coming from the northwest junction with Mason Creek Trail, this trail starts off pretty casual, albeit a little bumpy. A little over 1/4 mile in, there will be a short, hiker-only trail that you can walk out to Eagle Cliffs Overlook.

Continuing on, you'll reach Pikes Peak Overlook that is very close to the trail. Catamount Overlook is the last of the three scenic vistas on this trail just about 1/4 mile down from Pikes Peak Overlook.

Right after Catamount Overlook, the trail will fork for a short period before joining back together. The left fork is the easier bypass and the right will take you down the most technical part of the trail - a sizable rock slab with varied terrain. It's very fun, but gets quite steep (downhill in this direction). A solid intermediate rider shouldn't have much trouble with it.

After the rock feature, the trail gradually starts to smooth out into some fast, sweeping berms before meeting back up with Mason Creek Trail.

Snowy, Icy: Some snow and ice in shady spots. Still very rideable.
