Overview

Take the Last Call Trail to the intersection of Terrapin Station. Hang a left on Terrapin Station and enjoy the one mile of mild grade to descend back to parking area.

Need to Know

This Featured Ride pretty much traverses the base of Mt. Kessler and therefore takes a while to dry out.

Description

This is a great intro to the technical and rocky trails of Mt. Kessler! Don't be deterred by the climbing during the first 0.4 miles—once you get past it, you'll get to enjoy a beautiful ride through the trees with mild ascents and occasional dips!

The trail comes to an obvious T-intersection where you can hang a left on to stay on this Featured Ride. This section of Terrapin Station is super enjoyable! You'll ride it for about a mile before it drops you back out at the parking area.

Remember to have fun!
