Trail Riddle Rd.
Steeper than other climb trails in the network but it gets you up the mountain in 30% less time than Yellow Brick Road and Neverland. It’s somewhat shaded other than the bottom. An abandoned destroyed car litters the trail after the creek crossing.

It’s a long climb that’s slow to gain elevation but scenic. Somewhat technical in spots.

Rode N to S.
Great trail!! My fiance, who is generally a good intermediate rider found it very challenging.
The day before we had ridden "Granite" in Vernon, and she cruised through that. So if you're "just" a blue rider, maybe pick an alternative trail, or use this to test you!
As an advanced rider, I LOVED the alternative optional harder lines and drops. Plus I nipped off down sections of "slabs" and "high roller" to get my fix.

Trail Chute Out
Over grown and have to be a super human to go up. If you go down there are down trees and branches to watch out for. Seems like a forgotten trail at points

Nice looong climb, mostly fairly relaxed with a few moreintense sections. No good options to get into the main set of trails before reaching the top of it.

This was one of the first 'other than the classic' trails in the Mice. Built as a climb. If you descend down it's called 'Derf'.
