Trail Adobe Jack
Rode Adobe from the parking lot straight to Soldier pass intersection. The beginning of the trail has some technical climbs and drops that might required a little push. After a quarter mile, trail gets flowy and fun. Along the way you have some impressive views, make sure you stop for that memory pic. Soldier pass is the destination

This is an incredibly fun and easy climb for what you get going down Grand Central or Javelina. If you can put down some watts, you can go 15 mph+ on the last portion of the climb! Also, the flow and short techy bits would make a spectacular DH in itself. Woooohoooo.

Great climbing trail. Barely feels like a climb and has just enough flow and tech.

Have rode a few times now and this trail has good uphill flow(South to North). Great way to get back up to the downhill oriented(North to South) Grand Central, Jevelina etc.

Rode it from red to green after going from Devil's Kitchen >> Jordan >> Javelina and was pleasantly surprised by the speed and flow in this direction. I was expecting to "climb" back up to Soldier's Pass but it's one of those trails where you don't really feel the elevation gain because it's up and down with good flow the whole way. Definitely intermediate and definitely a fun rip in either direction.
