Kitchen is not just a trail, its a place. The Kitchen is a well defined, fast and flowy trail that meanders its way through a rocky hillside with multiple natural rock features for technical lines, drop-off, jumps and much more. It has everything you will expect to find in a hot, working kitchen. This where the cool kids play See if you can find all of the secret lines through the rocky outcrops, the Firewall and the Lost Trail.

From the South you can access it via the Powerlines and from the North via Fairbanks Trail that also ends in Kitchen. At the bottom, just past 50 Yards The Hard Way it connects with Swamp Bypass.

       Coming from the power lines side, there is tons of overgrowth making it impossible to ride and avoid poison ivy. It was a fun trail with a few rock rolls and tiny berms
