Great trail and good intro to the Passion P. Operates as the hub as well, getting you to the spokes and offshoots. The PP trails are really well built; have lots of loose rock that’ll remind you of the Back 40; and are a little on the hard side for their ratings. Generally pretty well signed with some creative designs, such as an actual crown of thorns on that trail’s sign.

It is meant to be ridden CLOCKWISE. Please ride clockwise. There are dangerous blinds created otherwise. It is a one way trail for a reason. Also, to clear up any confusion, it is only 395 in elevation gain.

I forgot to note that going by my gps watch and how my legs felt, I doubt there’s 900-1000 ft climbed on the loop. I would say it’s some less than that, maybe 500-700 ft.

This is a fun and easy trail. It has smooth climbs with the downhills being flowy and fun. You can ride it on a hardtail without any problems. Good for beginners but don’t let that scare you more experienced riders away. Easily completed in 30-45 min.
