Evolution (or Evo) dishes up a sophisticated blend of jumps, ladders, and drops during the half mile between the summit and RD 3000.

Evo kicks things off with a series of doubles before winding towards a long log ride feature called the Stinger (rebuilt in early 2015). The next section offers a couple of small trail-drops and table tops before arriving at a duo of abrupt ladder drops (ride arounds are present).

An off-camber sandstone slab represents the last of the rougher riding – giving way into a section of doubles before arriving back at the road. Head left to connect with either Pump Track or Unemployment Line.

Access Info

Follow the doubletrack road all the way to the towers at the top of the hill. Just keep going. There is artistic signage that marks the trail.

Tree down on berm section near the top at 11AM on 11/3. Otherwise trail is fine, will be muddy after the snow melts, about 4 inches at the lookout.
