Take it Easy Details
Often the debate about this trail is whether it’s namesake was to “take it easy” because of the steep tricky cliffs and rooty corners, or whether the intended meaning was to “take it easy” and relax your epic ride is almost over! While remaining undulating for most of the trail, Take it Easy is a fairly technical and fun ride. It is most commonly ridden as the follow up to Gold Rush at the finish of a longer ride. At the end of Gold Rush turn left onto the gravel road for 300m. Watch for the entrance to Take it Easy on your right. Entering onto Take it Easy you immediately come across a fork in the trail. Your best value is to go left at the fork. This option will lead to a nice booter and a great double right before the first berm! Both choices at the aforementioned fork spit the rider out along an undulating section of rooty and punchy trail heading back toward the CBT Mainline Trailhead and back to town. Don’t be fooled by the name, you will find yourself riding within half a metre of a cliff 12m above the Columbia River for part of this ride.
Take it Easy can also be ridden as a short out-and-back loop from the CBT Mainline Trailhead. Again, consider yourself forewarned about the cliffs along which you will be riding.
