A "figure eight" route starting and ending at the Rice Pinnacle parking area. A solid mixture of climbing / downhill with the intent of staying on single track for the majority of the route. The single track sections are mostly technical, but there are quite a few jumps to be had. The route is best experienced by riding North out of Rice Pinnacle on Rice Pinnacle Road.
