Best trails on West Cuesta Ridge for an "intermediate" rider. Slightly more challenging than most of the trails in town, but this route still skips over the really gnarly stuff up there, perfect for an improving intermediate rider. The big descents on this route are Botanical (high speed and loose), Morning Glory (technical singletrack), and Shooters (relatively high speed singletrack, less rocky/difficult than all the other "big" descents on The Ridge). This route can be extended by pedaling up from town instead of being shuttled, adding additional laps in The Eucs, or just exploring the other sweet trails out there.

Dirt is good. The entrance hip-jump on to the trail has had a significantly bigger lip put on it. The following tabletop jump has also had the lip and the landing steepened. They are both now more dirt-jumper style jumps instead of the long-and-low type of lips they used to have. If you are an experienced jumper you will like the changes. If you aren't as experienced in the air it might take a little getting used to, but it'll make you a better jumper.

Trimmed up and good to go, previously mentioned rut has been fixed, along with several other corners that have been beefed up. Thank you SRAM and CCCMB volunteers!!
