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.

It starts out ok but gets wetter as you go, and the switchbacks are VERY wet. Riding not recommended until it dries out
