The Summer Minturn Mile. Starts with some flowy turns in an open meadow with incredible views. There are a few ups and traversing and then you get into some rowdy singletrack. After that you hit some very rocky straight descents with tight switchbacks before you enter a new section improved by the VVMBA in 2016 and 2017. At the end you jump on the Game Creek Trail and then head to the Minturn Saloon for a drink and chips and salsa!
