Completed late September 2022, this reroute added a great addition to the Flagstaff trail network. Trail is rideable in both directions, with a few fast sections both going up and down. The bottom of trail departs from the old Lower Brookbank a few hundred feet from the road. The top of the trail intersects the top of Big Bang, another trail similarly designed but slightly more advanced. On Lower Brookbank you will be riding through the Museum Fire scar of 2019 and traverse the hillside to the top of the Dry Lake Hills, where the trail flattens out before going around the meadow. This trail is mostly intermediate with a few beginner and advanced sections (especially on the uphill) as well. It is multi-use and bi-directional, so please consider others while using the trail.

      Trail is in great shape. All clear! South aspect and lots of exposure. It's going to be hot in a week or two.
