Trail shared by Don Sutton

A great flow trail in the May Valley Network; full of great turns...not really a straight section on it.

Description

This is a beautifully flowing trail that is mostly ridden downhill from west to east but it does ride fairly well uphill. There is a section in the middle where you can choose to climb up slickrock and then down a giant boulder or negotiate a log ramp over a fallen tree. A USFS-approved Idyllwild Cycling trail crew gave it 5-star maintenance in May of 2017. This trail gets better each time you ride it.

Snakeskin is scenic, flowy, and will keep you on your toes w/frequent, tight, techy sections.

Snakeskin...quite a bit of boulder action to be had on this trail.
