a more entertaining ride back to the base of Quarry than the sandy double track. After the 2nd short climb, beware a technical 2-step drop with an immediate tight turn right (which is loose and easy to wash out the front wheel).

      reporter The good news is all the ice is gone. The bad news is all the snow is gone too, down to dirt and rock.

       It's important to note that this trail was built for rock climbers, so you have to watch out for them as you ride on the trail. They use this trail to access the rocks above.
