Description

It is a very fast singletrack with extensive embedded, fractured rock, steep drop-ins and bowls, banked corners, sweeping drops with large rock obstacles, and jumps—serious mountain bike handling skills are needed.

The trail can be accessed from Doing Time Trail #789. After a slight ascent, you encounter a very steep drop in and banked right hand corner—enjoy the Fractured Zone Trail. At the end of the descent you climb a few hundred feet in about 0.25 miles and rejoin Doing Time Trail #789.
