Shuttle - Via the paved Mount Ashland road

The Best of Mt Ashland - efficiently links two great downhill segments via a short climb. You are rewarded with a variety of flawless singletrack from this ride. With almost 7K’ of descending though fast, flowing trails punctuated by berms, roots, and rocks. One can skip the climb up Bull Gap Road 200 and continue straight down Catwalk Trail, however Upper Lynx and Lower Lynx are not to be missed!

Time Warp starts with a short doubletrack climb offering a good warmup, before becoming singletrack with unbelievable alpine views. The downhill rewards you with rocky terrain peppered with small natural jumps and drops, you’ll descend from above the tree line into a green forest highlighted by granite slabs. The ripping descent eventually comes to an end, as you start down Ashland Watershed 2060 road. Utilize this section to recover before starting the routes final climb up Bull Gap Road 200. You will climb for two miles before catching the tail end of Lower Bull Gap, to use it as a connector to the wonderful Upper Lynx Trail. Its all downhill from here! Enjoy some of Ashland's best purpose built trails as you twist, turn and jump your way into town!
