__________________________________________________________________________________

Rocky Ridge (Orange Stage) - Expect steeps, rocks and some exposure

Finality in to Twist and Shout (Red Stage) - Tight, wide open, then tight again. Expect direction changes and a variety of speeds. Try not to stall up in any corners on this one

Bumblebee (Blue Stage) - High speed blasting! Full tilt, with a few jumps.

Double D (Yellow Stage) - The most popular trail on the hill. Great flow and berms galore.

Bisecticon (Green Stage) - Bonus stage. Super short and close to the finish. After a long day, this high speed run full of tight catch berms will be the cherry on top!

A very nice climb trail. I would call it a green with a punchy end and a few blue climbing obstacles. For reference, Xylem on Maple Mountain is much more difficult. What’s great is you aren’t gassed by the time you get to Double D and will still have legs for another climb after. As others have said, it’s a beautiful forest and you will be appreciating the natural views during the entire climb.

This is a really fun, easy trail to bomb down too! Visibility is good for seeing uphill traffic.

Is the lower section re-opened after maintenance. My friend told me that on Saturday he rode the whole trail top to bottom.

Thanks Rick for building this nice climb trail and it was great meeting you. Had an awesome time on loam line, some of the biggest trail jumps I ever hit! We ended up driving north and are in Cumberland now but thanks for offering to guide us.

Trail description is right, nice rocky faces, with ride around options. The ride arounds have become quite prominent, so is worth a look around when riding first time. Think if in doubt and want the more technical line, look left. Great trail.

This might be simply a case of trailforks not updating on Android, but this trail is (I think) known as Ronnie's rocking ride (as it's labeled on the trail)

It's been a long time since I've ridden in this area and I'm blown away with the quality of the climbing trails I've been on so far. This trail is a gem.

Yea! I should have given it credit as its a fantastic climbing trail!
Last week we took: Crankenstein, Schools out, YBA roadie, YBAR, Little dipper and Field of dreams up. It was a pretty good up route!

I've changed the description to "both directions". I double checked and the majority of strava users are indeed going down this trail. There are some changes to this trail coming in the future possibly and the goal is to make riders aware that hikers and riders will use this trail as a climbing route. Thanks for checking in Regamaro and asking.

Cheers, would be great to have a climbing trail similar to the one at Maple! I've only ridden down this trail a couple times so my vote goes to making it more climbable! I'll even put shovel time in the dirt for it of course.

Have you ridden A Grand Traverse yet? This is the premier climb trail on the mountain. With the upcoming Kaspa Parking lot closure this will be how the mountain needs to be accessed.

Thanks to trail builders for the great job. Great trail if you what to do a quick lap once you've comeback to the parking lot. Or you can lap it a few times!

My favourite climbing route up the mountain now. The trail is well thought out with consideration of the natural terrain and drainage in the area. Beautiful forest and a treat all year in any season.

This trail has been completely rebuilt and updated with more flow and smoother berms. Amazing work by Trevor Thew on behalf of the CTSS. A new must ride on the mountain, best accessed by riding up Danalyzer
