Need to Know

The entrance to Double Rainbow is fairly well marked and apparent, but if you were really flying you might miss it so be on the lookout for it if that's what you're aiming for.

Description

If you're looking to connect the Rainbow Trail #1336: Bear Creek to Mears Junction (Methodist Mountain Section) with Double Rainbow look no further than this well-graded mix of double and singletrack. As a descent, it offers plenty of chundery rowdiness to get the blood pumping. It could also be used to ascend, although it gets a bit steep up near the top and may be a bit of a grind to hammer out.
