Description

This newer trail starts at the intersection of Pauli and Uncle Nazty, and connects down into (Upper) Sand Dunes. Expect a flowy rolling start before things get very interesting; after a left turn with multiple lines there will be an optional exposed line on the right (with the best view down onto Salida) into an optional five-foot step-down on the right.

Continue into more rolling trail with several lines until another optional rock-roll feature on the left. The trail then pitches down with several (rollable) one-foot drops in sharp turns, into more steep. It levels out about two-thirds in, and actually goes uphill for a little bit, before the final downhill section into a wash with a tricky last move that connects it into (Upper) Sand Dunes.

This trail is technical, with steeper grades, with lots of rock and some exposure. It requires good bike handling skills, and knee and elbow pads might be a good choice for this one.

This trail was hand-built by Singletrack Trails Inc., for Salida Mountain Trails.
