A short singletrack climb from the access road brings you to Cheese Rock & a large granite slab with numerous options.

NOTE: Take caution, there are numerous fall hazards here! On the minor level are breaks in the rock slab with 5-20 foot drops. On a more major level is the large fall hazard along the North side of the rock (riders right). The ride up to cheese rock is fine for everyone. The rock slab should only be attempted by experienced riders with good judgement.
