Family Friendly The trails are not too technically difficult, okay for newer and smaller riders.

Phases is the first area in the valley to melt out. It is usually running by the first week of May.

Overview

Fun, flowy descents with a few sections of old school hand-built trail. Phases is usually ridden in "laps." Consider this route the best 4 laps to see the most of the area and descend the best trails.

Description

Start the ride pedaling up New Quarter until you hit the main access road. Take a right and wrap around on the road. Be prepared for a steep finish to the climb. Once there you'll be at the top of Phrooty Pebbles. Phrooty is flowy trail at the top and has a few interesting rock sections towards the bottom. There are some fun "A" lines before intersecting with Phased and Confused.

At the intersection, take a right and head towards the Salad Bowl area. You'll climb Salad Salad Spinner and cross over Fruit Loop (making a figure 8). Enjoy a couple technical spots on the climb until you arrive at the top of Fruit Loop.

Starting the descent, you'll have some fun rock rolls and split line features. Pick your own adventure all the way down Fruit Loop and continue on to Salad Bowl (west). Pass the bottom of Salad Spinner and continue back to Phased and Confused, then climb this trail. Enjoy this quick and rewarding climb back to the original access road on the front side of Phases.

Descend Brush Pile and climb back up the access road past the top of New Quarter. You'll ride for another half mile and take the right access road at the Y. This will take you to the top of Ridge Runner. Here you'll get some amazing views of the valley and a technical, slow decent down the first part of the trail.

The end of this portion is flowy with some fun doubles (that are easily rollable). Head back down New Quarter to the trailhead. Lots of folks like to climb and descend New Quarter, so keep an eye out for uphill riders and people hiking.
