This is the primary trail to the top of the hill. Leaves directly from paved parking lot on the East side. Trail starts out mellow as it winds along the outer edge of the park, it is a false flat here, as the grade is 1-3 degrees uphill. Just prior to crossing the first section of ski trail, the switchbacks begin. Tightly they wind up the steeper grade, still only 2-5% grade. The trail is very natural, all hand built, following the contour of the land, leaving most of natural rock and roots as they lay. The next section is considered the middle portion, and does start to gain some elevation, but still remains on the mellow side of difficulty. There is one rock turning climb that can test your skills. The trail then crosses and uses a short section of ski trail to reach the final upper portion. The final climb to the top is full of many challenges, including off camber climbs, roots, logs, rocks! The grade also becomes steep in spots, close to 20% for short little punches. To ride this section clean is an accomplishment, as one slip of the tire or pedal and your momentum is gone! This is a great challenging climb that will certainly test your ridding skills. It is also one heck of ride down if you are willing to let go of the brakes.
