Rainbow; she's a temper mental beast. Claimed a few pounds of skin at a recent Enduro race.
Rocks, slabs, speed, flat turns, drop turns, etc.
Its got enough to keep you on your toes.
After your cross the creek on the Rainbow Bridge (not yet painted as of this), head up (South) the FSR for about 50' and turn down the 2-track on your left (West). There will be a fence here from June-November that will need to be closed behind you.

Access Info

Via the Reservoir, head West down the 2-track for a couple hundred feet and you will see a trail veering up and left. You are locked in.
Via Sidewinder, head up the FSR 100' until the left hand fork. You are now nearing the Reservoir. Rainbow is on your right, look for the trail/signage.

The start is under 6" deep snow patches but they will be gone with this upcoming heatwave. Just ride on through. The snow only lasts the first...
