This is the main single track trail at Devil's head and is the best place to start if you are new to the area. It is rides fast and flowy, especially for how primitive the track is. Bridges and rock jumps are optional. The bottom park of the trail has some drainage issues so expect to see mud and puddles even if the rest is dry.

Access Info

Starts at the very top of the left side of the ski area, but has several lower entrances as well. It is recommended as a downhill trail as several section are too steep to be pedalled up. It can be reached by biking up the Summit Access Trail. Look for orange ribbons, blazes or other markers to find the entrances.

Disclaimer

Helmets and trail passes are required on the mountain bike trails.
