Description

You'll start off with some causal rooty turns and flat ground that will lead you to a hill with a tough downhill that will shoot you right out into the Red Rock trail area. Red Rock will have you cross a campus road (BE MINDFUL OF THE TRAFFIC) and take you directly into one of the most fun sections of the ride.

This area of the trail offers some fast fun turns with berms and a nice flow. Once you've conquered this area, you'll cross back over the campus road and enter into the Eric's Trail area.

Eric's Trail has some log obstacles and some very technical root areas that will keep you on your toes. Upon exiting Eric's Trail, you're going to shoot down TTT Down and get really moving. Possibly the fastest area on the trail, it will have your adrenaline maxed. Be ready because you'll have to squeeze through the Twin Oaks. Squeeze through the Twin Oaks and get ready to attack the ditch that is ever-changing. It has a steep and fast entrance and a steep and punchy climb to exit.

You'll be shot across the field to the Mike Thompson Loop where you'll find some roots and tough technical areas. Upon finishing the MT section, you're going to head back across the field to the ditch that again will be ever-changing even on this section.

After that, you're going to climb back up the TTT Up section. This will lead you to the area known as Mayhem where you can again increase the speed until a long rooty climb will have you slowing again. Once you've made it through that area, you're prepared for the Bottoms Long where your bike handling skills are going to be tested. This area is the most technical part of the trail and you'll be smiling the whole time.

You're ready now to head towards the end! Just tuck your head and keep the pedal to the metal, when you reach the dips at the end, you've made it!
