Description

Leaving La Tierra without a spin on this roller coaster is a sin! The trail starts between trail markers 17 and 21. It is a designated "technical trail" which usually means it is extra fun.

After a short downhill, you'll make a right and roll on flat ground through a small meadow. After passing over a small bridge, you'll approach the beginning of the whoop-tees. These are a series of short, steep dips into an arroyo and then back out to the ridge on either side.

If you are riding this trail for the first time, be careful as mastering these trails are all about momentum and timing. You'll know the fun is over when you cross one last time and head into the trees for a short climb out to the main trail. Another round perhaps?
