Description

As a climb the bottom of Sinks Way Trail starts in the valley off of the Rock Cut Trail and quickly climbs to the top of the ridge where it junctions with the East Ridge Trail and Powerline Trail.

As one of, if not the steepest, trails in the park it's a real challenge. Riders will ascend nearly 600 feet in 0.5 miles by climbing five tight switchbacks. If you don't like heights then this is not the trail for you. The route is moderately rocky with several nice naturally bermed curves along the way.

Unless you're a glutton punishment you'll likely enjoy riding this more as a descent.
