High alpine single track starting at the top of the Bike Park and traversing through forests and alpine meadows, along the ridge to Tod Lake, just below the summit of Tod Mountain. From Tod Lake, the trail continues the loop back to the top of the Sunburst trail. Recommended direction of travel is clockwise.

      Perfect time of year for this ride. The wildflowers in the Alpine are amazing. Trail is shared with some grazing cattle.

      This is a pretty narrow and at times rooty and rocky trail. More of a hiking trail than XC. Nice meadow views, but generally a frustrating ride,...

       Absolutely must ride in the area. Expect some steep climbs, but it's worth it. Early August the wild flowers are popping and make the ride amazing. Some medium technical sections on the way back around the mountain, making this a proper blue difficulty.

       Nice meadows, but generally a pretty frustrating XC ride. Very narrow, rocks and roots in annoying places. Really, it's more of a hiking trail. The northern 1/3 that connects to Level Up is just horrid. Avoid it.

      Too bad, with a bit of work it could be a gorgeous XC trail.

       This is an XC trail. Some fire road, steep short tech climbs, alpine meadows, roots.
      My only issue is there needs to be way more of it
