Light is waning but you just pulled into town and are looking to shred some dirt and punch the heart rate Climb up CBT for 4km to the Junction with Mighty Quinn. Head South on Mighty Quinn. This trail is one way down and all sorts of fun. Hit the doubles, hip the step downs, and rail the huge corkscrew berms. Cross Elk Road to where Take it Easy drops off. Take it Easy will guide you back along steep cliffs to the river bridge at the ski hill road. You will have a 5min ride back to town. Later over a beer, CBT will allow you to say you earned your turns and that pint!
