A rocky sustained climb.

Matt Thoele

Overview

Description

This trail is a rocky sustained climb to the top of Bergen. Of the 2 ways to the top, this one is slightly less steep and has fewer technical features compared to Too Long. Most features are large rocks and small rock gardens.

The trail has great flow towards the bottom. It's loose over hard pack. Good shade for most of the trail.

Getting forecast...

It's not too steep, but the technical sections require you to pay attention. The correct line isn't always obvious until you missed it. I think it's better to plow over the bigger features than getting stuck in the tight constrictions where you'll hit pedals and what not. It was my first time so we'll see how the second ride goes. I might try going up too long because this could be a more fun decent. Though i bet too long is a challenging climb. Oct 29, 2013
