“A nice, flowy bit of singletrack with swooping corners and fast ridge crossings.”— Connor Parish

Need to Know
About 150 feet or so from the entrance of Twister is the entrance to Back Door, a connector which will take you directly into the Vortex Pit. The trail can be accessed from a small spur off of Dog Bone located just before Kennz Kornerz OR off of the first corner in Puppy Loop.
The trail starts off nice and flowy with a decent straightaway that progresses into a small downhill section. You'll then go up to reach the top of a small crest that is followed by another downhill. Throughout the trail, there will be a few 4- to 5-foot ridge crossings that will give you a little speed. If you’re going fast enough, these can be used as tabletop-like jumps.
The end of the trail will have a few tight turns leading to the exit on Puppy Loop. After this, continue straight on Puppy Loop and turn right on Dog Bone to access the Santos Trails (across the street) or the Vortex Trailhead (down the access road to your right).
Overall, this is a really fun, fast trail with very little tech that will leave you grinning at the end.
