A short rip with loads of pumps and rollers and several sections of tech.

Overview

This is a one-way downhill only biking trail.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

The Legend splits off of Easy, Tiger and heads south for a short climb to reach a petite clearing and drop-in spot. It's a great spot to get kitted up or adjust any equipment before heading through a sort of natural start gate formed by a pair of trees.

Pumping the initial rolls allows riders to pick up speed with minimal pedaling. The feel here is reminiscent of the Summit Trail, although there is a little more chunk in the turns and straightaways. Up ahead, The Legend's first rock-roll pops up quickly. When you're rolling up, it appears very jagged. In reality though, it's quite smooth and the run-out flows well.

Keep pumping the rollers for a fast ride as the trail narrows and begins to side-hill on a well-benched but exposed section. There's some potential for gutsy doubles, but make sure to stick your landing or you'll blow off the edge in rather a spectacular fashion. Rock-roll number two shows up here, and the feeling of exposure and the off-camber face will make it more intimidating for most riders. The good news is it also rolls well.

The singletrack gets noticeably smoother ahead and really encourages an extra boost of speed. Don't overcook things though, as the roughs come back fast and it's easy to head into the turn above the third rock-roll too quickly. The final roll was constructed with a large boulder. It can be rolled, dropped, or avoided entirely via an optional ride-around.

As it wraps up, The Legend dishes up several deep rollers and more rocks to encourage riders to speed check before running out to the road above Megafauna. Either challenge that steep chunky singletrack, or turn left on East Side Road 7000 to soon pick up Easy, Tiger for the return.
