Description

After slogging up the Chili Dog Access Road, this trail rewards you right off the bat. Navigate some twisty and pedal-y sections before the grade steepens and the chunk gets chunkier. After a fast straightaway that funnels into an upward grade reversal that's littered with rocks and a root or two, you've arrived at the first bigger feature.

This rock can be approached one of three ways: ride around, roll, or launch. The roll is made tricky by the fact that it's off-camber and wants to push you toward a five-foot sheer drop to flat. Trust your tires and keep looking ahead. If you stay higher to the left, you can launch a little diving board drop onto a slab landing.

After clearing the rock, get ready for more chunk followed by a super fast section of trail riddled with longer slabs. Once you clear a very steep but short right-hand rock roll followed by a sharp left, you're into the final section of trail.

This technical section leads straight into the glory drop you've seen in all the BME videos. If you can ignore the questionable looking run-up and run-out, this is actually one of the smoothest drops at Glorieta. Once your front tire is on the take-off slab, just let go of the brakes and send 'er! Smooth as buttah.

If you're not interested in hucking, stay left for a rocky ride-around.
