“A trail for only those who love and adore technical riding.”— Chris Compton
It starts out as mostly smooth singletrack with many long bridge crossings. After about a mile, you'll get a taste of what the trail is truly about, with a section of pure rock uphill for about 500 feet. After this, the trail smooths out and starts to climb up Sourlands Mountain. Once making it to the top, the style of terrain undergoes a change and head through large boulders and endless rock gardens, for only those who love technical riding.
After crossing over the Pipeline Trail, the Ridge Trails comes to a section know as "Boulderama" and it got that name for a reason. The trail changes from smaller rocks strewn about every way, to pure boulders. You'll be riding up and over rocks 15 feet off the ground for a good 0.5 miles that feels a lot longer because of just how challenging the riding is.
Finally, the trail begins to descend, but not without throwing some very technical rock gardens. This is the spot most commonly traveled by hikers, so be careful around blind corners.
