Overview

Mix of old-school and new, including a memorable descent with large berms, rollers, and jumps!

Description

This Featured Ride follows the projected course for the NCICL Dark Mountain race which is scheduled for May 6, 2018. This route uses some of the newest trails at Kerr Scott, which are exciting additions to the newly revamped Dark Mountain.

If scouting out this section without a guide who knows the route, use the MTB Project mobile app for this segment since it uses several unmarked connectors.

The route combines old-school singletrack (including some of the classic Burn 24 Hour course) with some doubletrack, and eventually culminates with a thrilling downhill to finish the loop.
