A local favorite, and for good reason. The words fast and flowy may be overused but certainly would't be out of place for this gem. The trail is very buff, manicured, and has many options for all levels of riders including swoopy corners, grade reversals and many pump-able features.

Typically ridden as a loop, starting with Larch Ridge, followed by COG and then back up to the parking area. Alternatively, it can be ridden as a shuttle, with drop-off at the start of Larch Ridge, and pick-up at the bottom of Monticola/COG.

5 or 6 decent sized trees down throughout the trail. Also, lots of branches/debris from the windstorm last night.

reporter The KCTS trail crew have completed annual maintenance. It was quite the mess to clean up, but it's now smooth and tacky.
