“One of the most talked about loops in the Mad River Valley.”— Cape Cod NEMBA
Climb Evolution for more flow and bermed switchbacks. Make sure to stay straight when the trail crosses Cyclone to descend to Dana Hill Road again. Climb Dana Hill for about 1/4 of a mile and look for the entrance to Clinic on the left marked by a white blaze. Clinic is a technical playground full of rocks, roots, twists, turns, and stream crossings. Stay right after the double stream crossing and then make a right onto GS to climb back to Dana Hill. Ride Dana Hill down about 300 feet to Enchanted Forest (on the left), an intermediate, flowy, and fun route.
Off of Enchanted Forest take a right onto Cyclone Connector, which is also an intermediate trail with a couple of stream crossings. Take a left onto Cyclone a few feet above the Dana Hill Road intersection. Cyclone is a narrow singletrack full of twists and turns, ups and downs, a long bridge, an extremely technical terrain of rocks, roots, rock faces, logs rolls and berms joined by a steep descent back to Dana Hill and Revolution. Head back down Revolution and enjoy the super fast, fun, flowy descent.
Just remember the descent on Revolution, and the wood-fired pizza and local craft beers waiting at American Flatbread at the ride’s finish line make it all worth it.
