Overview

A steep but mellow climb up the resort mountain with a very steep (but not overly technical) ride down narrow singletrack. There are several open viewpoints of the valley as you make your way up.

Ride it early or late to avoid families! IF you're feeling adventurous, there are a few branch-off trails to make things interesting. Pick up a trail map somewhere at the base area.

Description

Start out on the Village Loop, which can be accessed at a variety of points. This GPS track starts at the entry point on Offerson Road.

Take a left when you meet up with the Cinch trail and settle in for a long grind of almost 2,000 feet of doubletrack/service road.

Just before reaching the Spruce Saddle Lodge, you'll turn left toward Corkscrew. Follow the sign and if you've still got some gas left after the climb, you can take a loop around Rose Pedal to add some mileage. You'll take another immediate left on Corkscrew. Buckle in for a long and fast descent, with a couple trail crossings with Cinch and Dally.

At the third trail crossing, take a sharp right to either continue on Corkscrew or branch off on Aspen Glade (be aware that Aspen Glade is multi-use, watch for hiking families!).

You'll eventually get spit back out onto Village Loop where you can make your way back to your entry point or grab some lunch at the resort base.

Mainly dirt road up the ski hill, singletrack down. Aspen glade was one of my favorite parts. Definitely enjoyed it. Go early and avoid hikers. 8mi
