Description

Lowrider begins where the Sunbridge Hills Conservation Area main loop turns south. Everyone that has visited the trails knows that if you don't turn south you could ride to the north on a trail that has been there for ages. It is an impressive scenic overlook. The trail splits where it gets steep. Either side will do but I highly recommend the right side as it is the easiest.

The steep chute takes you down to a flat(ish) area where you need to go right. After a switchback down into a little valley, Lowrider will be following the property line for the remainder of this descent. So, as always, please stay on designated trails.

Once the trail straightens out a little, keep your eyes open for an intersection at the first sign of rock. Lowrider goes right and continues downhill along the property line. If you go left and the trail turns flat, you have wandered onto Highrider.

As you continue DH on Lowrider, you do NOT go all the way to the road. Watch for the bench cut climbing the hill to the left. Now you'll be heading south. There aren't any navigation issues for the rest of the trail. There are a few connector trails to Highrider along the way. Lowrider is always the lower route to the right.

It passes through the only trailhead along Waterworks Road. It's at the bottom of Fall Guy. Immediately south of the trailhead is another connector trail leading up to Highrider. This one is the Session Rock connector trail. It's the connector that you wanna ride over and over. However, Lowrider stays right and descends gradually until it actually intersects the south end of Highrider. Lowrider continues south past Bipolar and, eventually, links up with the return climb for Sunbridge Downhill.

Other DH lines are planned that will run down to Lowrider. Other connector trails will go up to the main loop, in time, as well.

Dropping down the waterbars before turning south on the Sunbridge Hills.  The top end of the log on the right is the turnoff for the bypass that avoids the STEEP downhill where I stood while taking this picture.  It is also the route up when riding in reverse.
