Built after seeing the beautiful rock faces begging to be ridden just off the main trail. More single track was always the goal. Connecting to the Turkey trails and eventually to Broken Down Snowmobile trail, Grinder is best ridden in one direction and is mostly uphill with tight rocky switchbacks eventually leading to an exposed cliff edge and a rocky descent with a sharp left at the bottom, Grinder is well….a Grind.
