“Intimidating bridges and drops compete with rough gnar on a challenging descent.
— Eric Ashley
Open during summer park hours.
One Way Only:
This is designated as a directional trail.
Look for the start of this steep and gnarly ride between the jumps and drops of the Joy Ride Jump Park. There you'll find a narrow path between two rock walls that lead to a bridge crossing over Crank It Up
. Not one to pack all the punches in the first few feet, Lower Joyride follows this up with an even taller bridge that crests Crank It Up
again before dropping away in a way that's sure to make riders pucker.
After the wood features, you'll plow through a collection of craggy rocks that are somewhat reminiscent of an angry creek bed. Up next, a small clearing serves up two lines across an off-camber rock slab before a load of loose rocks fill the path one again. A short slab leads to relatively smooth terrain before the trail dips into the trees for a long picturesque bridge. A serving of rough chunk and deep roots is next so don't loose your focus. The crux of this section is a challenging right-handed turn just before a wooden ramp and double jump at the end of the trail.
Lower Joyride is located in the Fitzsimmons Zone.
