“Glorieta's claim to fame: 2.5 miles of varied gnar.”— Brian Smith
Office Hours: Monday - Friday, 8am-5pm, weekend office hours vary.
After an especially steep and rocky section of hiking, you'll reach a viewpoint where you can remount your bike and start riding again. Enjoy the flowing, swoopy descent until one last steep uphill that puts you atop an obvious knoll with panoramic views. This is where the fun begins (it's also where the BME race stage begins).
Navigate some tricky high-speed corners and the occasional rocky section before a quick, punchy climb that serves as your queue that the first technical feature is approaching. "The Slot" is exactly what it sounds like: a chute between two sheer stone walls that requires a tricky roll-in and a fast, technical exit. Not your cup of tea? Use the ride-around.
More high-speed rock smashing follows the slot along with the occasional steeper rock-roll. Eventually, you'll reach Chili Dog's second signature feature, a lippy ~6-foot drop. Check your speed on this one because it's easy to send way too deep.
Now the technical rock smashing really comes to the forefront. Pump rocks and try to keep your speed through a flatter section with tons of gnar that leads to another drop. This one is much more approachable than the last, with a flat takeoff and tons of transition.
Flow through the final winding, smooth section until you reach a steep rock-roll followed by a little double. That's it! Pedal back into town or head back up for another lap.
