“La-Z-Boy is a lighthearted forest trail that acts as a main thoroughfare for the lower mountain.
— Eric Ashley
The majority of the trail gently winds through the forest, and more technical areas are manageable or easily walked.
While La-Z-Boy gets its name from a discarded recliner that was found during its construction, the name is also a good indicator of its casual, winding nature. There are a few more challenging sections, but overall La-Z-Boy is inviting to all levels of rider in either direction.
At the top, the trail starts off of Little Mountain Park Road opposite of the kiosk and porta-potty. A brief climb from the roadway reaches the intersection with Over the Top
on the right. From there, the singletrack twists and curves away beneath a shadowy forest to soon intersect with High Road
, and after a few more switchbacks, Lower Surfer's Way
With the various connections dealt with, La-Z-Boy is content to continue gently weaving past trees and even larger stumps. After the trail turns to the north, the winding cadence is eventually interrupted by a series of tight and shallow s-curves at the end of a long straightaway. Past the curves, La-Z-Boy returns to the familiar wandering cadence from before as it works down to the intersection with Cairn
. There are two bridges and a boulder with a wall-ride vibe to mix things up along the way.
La-Z-Boy turns past Cairn
to complete the rest of the descent, which is soon followed by a rolling climb. From here to the end is a steady grade with a few pinch-points and mild tech. The final gravely exit reaches the Little Mountain Park Road at a crosswalk next to the Entrance Trailhead.
