“Your main access route to and from the western trailhead.”— Lee Clark
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.
