A fun descent that punches back up to Meadow Trail, which completes the loop to Castle Trail.

Mike Ahnemann

Overview

Description

From the shelter at the top of Mount Falcon and Lair O' the Bear Loop, after catching your breath, ride the Castle Trail doubletrack until you see the Parmalee trail on your left. This trail is best ridden counter-clockwise. It's marked as difficult, but is mostly rideable by strong intermediate riders as well.

It's a fun singletrack reward after the big climb up, with a few rocky somewhat technical sections, and otherwise fast and flowy down with a moderate climb back up.

It ends at Meadow Trail, which you can take back to Castle Trail.
