John Wert trail is know to be one of the most technical trails in Rothrock. However there are really only two large rock gardens that cause an issue for most riders.
The trail starts at a yellow camp gate, once you ride past the camp and cross the gas line, the true singletrack begins. John Wert trail is know to be one of the most technical trails in Rothrock. However there are really only two large rock gardens that cause an issue for most riders.
