Description

Lower Duffman is noticeably rougher than its counterpart higher up the mountain. The singletrack starts at clearing on Lower Freight Train and heads into a tree-lined corridor before crossing under Lower Freight Train. A series of rock slabs gives way to a narrow entrenched trail that feels very much like a stream bed at points.

The tech can be deep and awkward, so maintaining enough momentum is crucial to not getting snagged up on the small drops, tight roll-downs, and rocks. Scattered small bridges occasionally smooth things out, but they actually make things much more difficult if conditions are wet.

After it picks up the end of No Duff, the trail rolls out on a rock ridge before swooping back in for more rooty and rocky roughs. The exit of Side Track feeds in from the left before the next cascade of tech sucks riders onwards. A few steeper roll-downs will require more focus before things back off for a loose high-speed cruise on a much smoother section. Things wrap up pretty quickly after the trail crossing, but there still a few rock lines to explore before ending on Golden Triangle.

Lower Duffman is located in the Garbanzo Zone.
