If you are wanting to get out of the late Summer heat and are looking for a great single track ride that is challenging but not too intense, this ride is a beautiful cruise through the pines and has the climbing nicely spread across its 21 miles.

Park at Freddy's Stack Rock trail head and ride the 3 miles up Bogus Basin Road (~500 ft ascent) to start the awesome 9.5 mile Around The Mountain (ATM) loop knitting in Brewer's Byway and Berm Baby Berm for some great downhill flow (~1600 ft cumulative ascent). Stop for refreshment at the lodge or if you are a hardcore just push on for the next 9 mile loop down Eastside (~1500 ft cum descent and ~1000 ft cumulative ascent). 21 miles, 3000 ft vertical of climbing, 2200 calories burned

Wonderful trail. Nicely routed and maintained. There are a few fun rock features but otherwise the tech is moderate, but that doesn’t take away from the fun. We finished by coming down New To This. That was a fun way to finish. Overall a very enjoyable ride.

A gentle and well-built climbing trail with only about 4 small sections with rideable, smooth boulders. Great views.

It gets stupid worn in the summer, had one of my worst crashes ever because I slid in a deep AF patch of sand after a berm. Still fun if you scout out the abnormalities every time.

Trail is actually open. Popular for hikers but also probably the best XC trail at the resort right now. Take it easy on your speed, but still very enjoyable. More pine tree sections than most other trails.

This trail is just delightful. Easy climbs, fast fun flows, a few technical rocks just to keep things interesting and great views. All levels can ride and enjoy this at any speeds. A must ride for the region.

Entrance Exam portion of trail is now closed. Use Stack Rock trail instead.

Only use Freddy’s Lower Stack Rock. The upper trail is no longer open and passes through private property.

This trail trespasses through private property between bogus basin road and Eastside trail, lower stack rock trail is the official sanctioned trail, DO NOT USE FROM BOGUS BASIN ROAD TO EASTSIDE

The trail was absolutely beautiful, even with the smoke. Also want to reiterate that it is one way only (counter-clockwise), and also way more fun in the one way direction cause you can finish with one of the downhill chairlift access trails. Would do it again.

Great views, but just ok as a mtb ride. Not sure I agree with the counter clockwise suggestions, unless you like climbing rocks and descending flat stuff.

Lots of hikers on this trail. Has some uphill if you're coming from the DH park to check out the other side.

Fun, clean trail. Contrary to what Trailforks shows, and in accord to what the locals will say, it flows best in counterclockwise fashion, starting at Deer Point and ending at Brewer's Byway
