Trail shared by Mitchell Allen

Another awesomely fast and flowy trail with sections of rock features and a 100-ft. cedar skinny nicknamed Nessie.

Features Drops/Jumps · Views

Lower Kanob is a one-way trail (ridden counterclockwise) for mountain bikers. It is also open to hikers and trail runners so mountain bikers should be aware that other users may be encountered while traveling downhill quickly in some sections. There is also a wet weather closure program in place at Rattlesnake Ridge. One Way Only: This is designated as a directional trail.

Need to Know

There are no trash cans or bathrooms on site. Please pack out what you pack in. The closest amenities are about 1 mile away at Pinnacle Mountain State Park.

Description

Once you turn onto Lower Kanob from Mountain Boomer, there is a short climb to access the top of a small knob and the first rock garden. Beyond the chunk is some awesome flow with berms, rollers, and optional jumps that will leave you grinning from ear to ear!

As you work your way down hill, you'll come to a bridge that spits you right out into the narrowest trail on the preserve. Follow this easier singletrack on a short and easy climb that ends just below the Lower Kanob. As you make your way downhill into a tight right turn, be sure to look back to the north for an amazing view of the summit of Rattlesnake Ridge!

The following downhill is full of big, rollable boulders and chunk that was partly hand-built and partly machine-built, ending in a big tight berm. There is an optional roll line off of a big boulder into the berm if you look closely. Once past the berm, follow the smooth and flowy singletrack across the road and through a tight wash, before you once again go downhill and onto the longest cedar skinny on the preserve (almost 100 ft long), nicknamed Nessie for obvious reasons.

An easy and flowy climb takes you back up to the junction with Mountain Boomer near Tombstone Ridge.
