“An enjoyable collection of closely-packed switchbacks leading to the summit.”— Eric Ashley
Family Friendly This is a great option for riders to learn to control their bike without having to mash on the brakes the whole way down.
The sequence of turns are so closely wound, that at times it makes progress feel slow when in reality, the steady and easy elevation gain allows for quick going. These occasionally rocky and root-laden turns continue all the way to the intersection with the North Viewpoint Trail.
In the reverse, Sidewinder presents a fun descent that allows newer riders to learn to play with tech and corners without having to battle runaway speeds. At the same time, more experienced riders can practice their bike handling skills to maintain fluid momentum through the shallow berms. Keep an eye out for an optional log ride if you're looking for some balance practice too. Sidewinder continues straight at the unmarked intersection with Bonnie and Clyde's.
