Features -none-

This is a two-way trail. Pay attention for riders coming in the opposite direction, especially when climbing.

Description

Spearfinger starts off of Lazy Elk, climbs to the top of Fire Mountain, and ends at the intersection with Uktena and Kessel Run. It starts with 1.8 miles of climbing then descends for almost 0.2 miles near the top. Spearfinger intersects with Waya at the half-mile mark and Fire Tower at the 1.2-mile mark. This trail is the easiest of the three downhill options from the top. It is a wide, machine-groomed singletrack with plenty of berms and rollers.

Someone generous local had been up there with a leaf blower, cleaning up the trail. Incredible.
