Trail shared by Torsten Heycke

Flowy, featureful, swoopy turns and doubles on a downhill blast.

Features -none-

This is a one-way, downhill-only biking trail.

Description

This is a great introduction to the two-miles of Jabberwocky that immediately follow. Lizard is a shorter taste of nicely banked turns, doubles, swooping dives and potential for air. The singletrack starts off the upper part of Caterpillar at a somewhat confusing sign.

Take the right turn, marked for "Downhill bikes only" which really means bikes in a downhill direction only. Soon, you'll be cruising down an easy, gentle straightaway that quickly becomes tightly-banked turns and short, steep descents followed by some equally abrupt uphill, doubles, and more wide, banked turns. All of this ultimately culminating in either Jabberwocky (straight ahead) or lower Caterpillar (to the right).
