Description

Monk's Trail is one of the most fun and rewarding sections you'll encounter at the end of the Palisades Canyon Loop. It's mostly downhill and you'll be challenged by rough and loose sections along with some solid rock sections where you'll be dodging two-foot tall boulders at times. A high suspension travel, all mountain rig is better for the downhill sections of this trail. Cross-country bikes will take a serious beating unless you take it slow.

Near the end, you'll encounter some fun, technical switchbacks and a few jumps with very narrow landings that require great precision. Luckily, you can ride over these and treat them more like a pump track section. After the jump section, put your bike in a high gear and pedal like mad to make it up the steep ramp to the Palisades Canyon Access Road that most riders start their Palisades adventure on.
