A flowing and technical trail loop connecting Intemann Trail to Section 16 Trail.

Allen Tanner

Overview

Dogs: Leashed

Description

Sometimes referred to as Garbage Chutes, this trail loop links the Intemann Trail to the Section 16 Trail. It may be ridden clockwise or counterclockwise. As of yet, no official trail connects to lower trails, but social trails exist to exit the loop from the bottom.

The descent from Intemann Trail is fast, flowy with lots of whoop-dee-doos. After turning south through a meadow, two technical turns gets you to the overlook.

The trail turns south, climbs slightly, and winds around some narrow blind corners around cliff segments (good idea to ring a bell or shout out your position). A very steep and very cool technical rock feature breaks up the winding trail. The trail then climbs up towards Section 16 Trail going over several more sections of whoop-dee-doos and banked corners.
