Guardians Trail Details
Guardians Trail is probably fun for those who enjoy the thrill of cheating death. Bikes are allowed but it was never built for them and it has had little to no maintenance. There are brutal rock gardens, sharp lava rock, off camber corners, washed out sections with 20 foot cliff drops, and much much more.
EDIT: Guardians is one of the most popular and most famous trails in Chico. It is one of most people's favorite trail in the park and includes a little bit of everything. The upper section is open and mostly flat with some large rock faces that can be cause for a hike-a-bike. The middle follows along the base of the cliffs of south rim and is tree covered. This is a fun rollercoaster section with some tricky rock features such as the toilet bowl, short punchy climbs, and fast flowy singletrack. The lower section includes more tricky rock sections and flowy sections. Many sections of Guardians are very exposed.
