A steep and very loose scramble through the trees.

Description

Frankenbeans is a loose and dusty singletrack that peels off of Alhambra. Things get started with a steep corner that drops riders into a loose and rutted shoot. At the bottom, a steep turn provides the first of many high-line versus low-line options. The high-line is definitely faster, but involves a drop into the berm below.

A section of benched singletrack brings the trail across the road. The next two turns can be very loose, so watch your traction. The trail continues down through a sweeping gravely turn before another bomb-holed straightaway. At the next left-hand, riders can continue left to follow the easier singletrack of Frankenbeans, or they can let things roll into the large drop and step-up jump of Baby Swiss (you don't need as much speed as you may think, and it's well-worth scoping out first).

The two lines quickly merge before Frankenbeans heads into the "World Cup" section across a bundle of roots. The trail is wrapping up fast but there's still another rollable wooden drop, some rough corners, and two huge runout berms.
