One Way Only: This is designated as a directional trail.

Overview

This will get you from the main parking lot to the highlight of the trail system: E-ticket. A trail name coined from historic Disneyland rides, where you got tickets labeled A-E for various rides.

Want to ride the horse drawn street car? An A-Ticket to ride.
The Mad Tea Party? A C-Ticket ride.
The Matterhorn Bobsleds? That's an E-Ticket ride my friends.

So we are clear. Think of yourself at 6-8 years old. If you had the experience and courage to ride the Matterhorn, then this is the trail for you. Otherwise, you should try the other trails until you get a little more experience to be safe.

Need to Know

Parking fills up fast on weekends. Try to get there early if you can.

Description

This is a great site for beginners. But so many noobs getting in trouble. This is the walkthrough you are looking for...

Hit it, try not to die, or brake excessively. Even if you go slow. It's silly fun. Riding it without injury is a win!

Experienced riders, it's a fun little trail. Not too exciting, but far from boring.

First off, this is not for kids, beginners, or those with heart conditions. This is the shortest, most technical route in MTRP. There are some that are more technical or dangerous, but those are longer. This is the highlight reel. Short and what you want. Beware if you cannot take your fingers off the brakes for most of the fire road sections, this is not the route for you.

Done with fire roads and looking to level up? This is the grinder. If you brake something on the bike, repair it. If you are hitting things hard, try to be smoother. Try to be smooth. Slow initially can be smooth. Then when you are more comfortable, try things a little faster. Smooth can be fast. Finally, session sections and you are well on your way to being one of the best.

Also, don't be turd that only rides downhill and can't get your butt up Sidewinder. The switchbacks up from the picnic tables. These aren't motorcycles. You need to pay to play. Pedal the ups and the downs. (Plus it's so fun and funky that when you can ride without putting your foot down you feel great). Play a game. Count how many times you need to put your foot down (dab) and how many times you need to get off your bike (full bail).

Every year and rainy season changes the trails. If it's too hard this year, don't lose hope, next year will be different.
