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.
