Night riding allowed in winter only. Waivers required.

Description

This trail cuts from the Lower Red to the Upper Red, and is a good way to shorten a ride without missing any of the fun. Ridden uphill (the direction shown), the trail starts easy, then becomes rocky and starts climbing.

About three quarters of the way up is a tight, armored switchback left turn, followed by more rocky uphill until you get to the Upper Red. Riding in the opposite direction, it's a fun, technical descent, but the switchback can be tricky.
