Need to Know

The MTB trailhead parking is a small fenced lot near the end of the loop. The bathrooms are located in the shelter.

Description

The first mile or so of the trail is wide open and rolling. While a net uphill, the flow is so fast that it feels like a downhill. The steep downhill that follows runs straight into a fast uphill. Torch it on the downhill, and you can almost coast to the top. Following the back side of the course, the switchbacks and downhill keep the speed high and the stoke up. The next couple miles are tight, twisting singletrack with a number of log-overs. Nothing super technical, but definitely be aware of the corners. The trail ends with a half mile of switchbacks climbing back up to the parking lot.

A big tree down around the 2 mile mark. I had to lift my bike over it. I moved the tree out of the way at the 4-5 mile mark. 3mi
