Traveling clockwise from the trailhead, the trail begins on And Cookies, an easy green with nice fast rollers. After about a mile the trail forks right onto the start of Jackalope and you begin a nice steady climb. The climb is fairly gradual, with no technical features, and a few short steeper segments for about 2.7 miles. The last 1/4 mile of the climb pitches up slightly until the top. Descending a short double track section quickly gets you into a fast, loose rock downhill with very few technical sections and only a couple loose turns. Once the trail crosses Serendipity, the trail is hard packed and fast sending you towards a nice, slightly technical spine section. The spine puts you on top of a small mesa followed by a short steep descent with one tight section to squeeze past and a couple technical bits that dumps out on the valley floor. A short roller section about a mile long takes you back to the trailhead.

Access Info

Maps located on the Northeast section of the parking area will direct you where to pick up the beginning of the trail and the trail is well marked.
