Accessed at Switchback Trail's only turn, 9-Toe offers riders with plenty of challenges. You'll be barraged with roots, tight turns and many rocks, with smooth sections in between that almost allow you to catch your breath. Most riders prefer riding it in a counter-clockwise direction. The lower section is faster and easier for intermediate riders and the upper is more technical for more advanced riders.

      Lots of leaves and got rained on while riding. Trails seems to hold up well when wet. Take extra care when going over roots/rocks.
