Trail shared by Ty Childers

A challenging trail with tight switchbacks, ledges, and short punchy climbs.

Description

This is a great trail for advanced riders and it will take most people a few ridees to clear every obstacle. The switchbacks are tight and fairly steep and there are enough ledges and rocks to keep things plenty interesting.

Fortunately, the many technical features on this trail are spaced far enough apart that riders get a little time to catch their breath before tackling the next one.

The trail can be ridden in either direction but it's more difficult from Tech Center Drive (as mapped). Either way it's a fun challenge!
