    #23674 in Mountain Biking

This trail skirts around the southern base of Mt. Erie. Lots of tight rock sections, rock gardens, tight steep switchbacks and brutal punchy climbs make this trail a fun challenge for skilled riders - expect to push your bike here and there, but trail is mostly rideable.

 This trail is no joke. Such a great challenge of both skills and fitness.

 This trail is fun if you liking hiking for half of it. The parts that are rideable are fun and very challenging, but I was off the bike as much as I was on it. Not really my cup of tea.
