Uphill-only for bikes, this trail is a 3000 foot climb used primarily by hikers. This trail serves up its most challenging technical moves in the first two miles, then settles into a steep, consistent grade climb to the top of Bald Mountain. Multiple options for loops via French Connection, the Traverse Trail, and the Perimeter Trails (Broadway to either Warm Springs or Cold Springs).
