Tie all the Black Diamond trials in Foxy together with fast flowy singletrack in between. Minimal fire roads and nearly zero paved road. Not for the faint of heart.

The route starts from the ranger parking lot and follows easy and fast green trails for the first 2 miles until diving into the swampy rock gardens in the northern side of the park. You will then tick off some of the best rated trials in the area of "3rd Leg" and "Keep Zee Momentum" while climbing and descending the eastern side of the main hill in the park. A fun single track "To The Tower" makes easy work of the last 77 feet of climbing to the high point of the park. Then it's time to dive into the All Mountain section of the ride on the high speed "Grunt Link". A short hike up some stairs puts you on the high point of "Grunt" itself. Either direction is a rowdy rocky descent but heading west has more flow and features. A blazing trip down Iron Fist is not to be missed before the short climb up to the undoubted gem of the park. "Spine". Keep your head up and be ready for the fast changing topography on this one. If you still have some juice in you, get some rest on the fire road to the east side and try to keep from walking the rocky "Blue Fins" before looping back to the lot.

Doing this route in reverse is not recommend due to the fast active downhill sections on the southeast side.

For some easy scenic breaks add in the loops around Upper Carpenter Pond and Sunset Lake.
