Need to Know

While not mandatory, this trail is only enjoyably ridden downhill. It is best to shuttle or loop from CR375.

Description

With over 6 miles of of flow and hard technical moves, Vitamin B is quite simply one of the best trails I have ever ridden. In fact, if some evil spell was cast on me, and I was only allowed to ride one trail every day for the rest of my life, it just might be it. That being said, the Vitamin B isn't for the faint of heart. It weaves in and among the granite outcroppings that litter the Fourmile area. To try to explain all of the features on this trail would be wonderful, but it would take far too long, but you can expect granite slabs, ledge drops, and segments of fast flow followed by slow tech. For expert riders, this trail has it all!

"Keyhole" feature. I'm not sure it's possible to clean this as it's narrower than most handlebars.

Almost at the end, looking back at one of features that are "Freeride" level difficult (notice the lack of a line to do anything but launch this drop).

This is definitely not for the faint of heart. Not sure who described this as having "fast flow" but there's very little of that on this route. 22.8mi

Mostly hiked. Fucking gnarly.

So challenging so good! The bottom of the trail appears to be closed for restoration. I called it quits with about a mile left and pedaled back up 6mi — 0h 51m
