Good single track climb trail to the towers. An easier alternative to climb is the tower trail but cobbler miner is more engaging.

My kids (9&12) love this climb. Although I think for beginner riders (of any age) it’s more of a blue. Lots of roots and short steep switchbacks increase the difficulty.

Great trail. Corners are a bit loose. Could use some berm build up and raking of loose rock.

IMO the Best trail in Elkwater, what a treat to ride! Amazing flow, the switchbacks are hella fun, a few good jumps with lots of chances at smaller jumps or just some pumping to get your speed up. I love this trail will ride again!

Classic XC trail! Great to climb or descend, take this as a connector to some of the other trails. Trail was in great shape. We used this as a climb connector to access other trails.

This is a great trail for more beginner MTBers such as myself. I would take in this trail starting on the Mystery / Lower Mystery before graduating to the ultra fun but way more rooty Beaver Creek Trail!
