Cyclone features roots and rocks and plenty of tech, including rocks that can be very slippery. It's a classic old-school up and down descent, with unrelenting challenges. It intersects with Evolution twice, affording bailout opportunities. The lower section has a crux rock rolldown that should be scoped first.

      One tree across the trail at top of the lower section is causing minor re-routing. It's a big Black Spruce trunk, needs a big chainsaw to clear.

      This trail really is a gift. One of my favorite attributes - as stated - "It intersects with Evolution twice, affording bailout opportunities". This can't be overlooked - if you want to try something more technical you can always decide to go back to Evolution instead.

      I can ride most of it downhill except for two short steep sections but what's really darn challenging is riding it uphill. The first half of it must be some of the most technical and challenging climbing I've ever attempted. I'm getting better at it but those roots are huge!

      The second half uphill is a bit more mellow for sure. It's more of a cross country trail than you'd think at that point.
