Brand new trail built by Predator Ridge in Spring of 2018. Granite has it all, a fast flowing descent, smooth rock slabs, snappy berms, punchy climbs and views worth packing a picnic lunch. Granite is set as a primary down trail but it you have the skills and lungs of steel it could be climbed. There is some exposure on the trail so look before you leap as some of this trail is built on a cliffs edge, literally. The high level of exposure is the main factor on why it is getting the expert designation. The more difficult slabs do have an easy way around, and if not for the exposure this trail could be labelled blue/intermediate difficulty.
