“A screaming downhill through McKittrick Canyon.”
— Kem Kough
North Face fills with snow in the winter.One Way Only:
This is designated as a directional trail.
Need to Know
Of the three ways down, Solar Coaster
is easiest with the best flow. McKittrick Canyon was part of an expert cross county race and Park Meadow
was the site of the downhill due to some ruts and rocks near the top. Otherwise, Park Meadow
has a nice flow after the top. McKittrick has a more consistent grade from top to bottom.
This trail starts with about 0.5 miles and 300 feet of climbing followed by 1200 feet of descent through the white fir and mountain mahogany of McKittrick Canyon (named after McKittrick Canyon in Texas).
