Start on the newly-built Trail of Endor
for big banked turns and a few added features, then switch to fast, flowing doubletrack and intermittent rock gardens all the way down to Merchant Valley.
Head to the Trail of Endor
by the backcountry gate at Eagle Point Resort. This awesome trail goes by quick as riders have a blast on big turns and a few wooden features on this short singletrack. At the bottom of the descent, turn right at the "Y" to start in on Hoth
starts on doubletrack along the edge of Elk Meadow, at the end there is a creek crossing and short uphill. The rest of the trail is winding doubletrack separated by rock gardens and short uphill climbs.
There are a few trail crossings. The first time Hoth
comes to another trail, take a right, then another right in a nearby clearing. For the remainder of the intersections, keep left until you end at HWY 53.
