This is a true cross country run. This trail can be ridden in either direction and both ways offer technical climbing, flowy riding and technical descending. The most common direction is coming off the lower part of Quentin’s, where you continue straight ahead and go counter-clockwise on Kobe’s. This is beautiful cross country that rises, falls and curves along land features. You cross a skidder track and continue the fun until you go through a small cut block. The trail will continue left on the power line road. Crank up a short hill and then you slide back into the singletrack. A grueling cardio climb up two switchbacks leads you to technical climbing through rocks and eventually reaches a junction with Huff & Puff. (Going right onto Huff & Puff will take you to the upper trails). If you continue left on Kobe’s past the junction, you descend with some flow and some great technical areas bringing you back to Quentin’s.

Going clockwise on Kobe’s you get a satisfying techy climb up to the Huff & Puff junction. If you then continue on Kobe’s, what follows is fun riding through the aforementioned rocks to the flowy cross country below.

Tons of trees down on the Mtn Shadows trails, especially Kobe. Spent 3/4 of my "ride" hefting my bike over trees.

 This trail and this entire network are in AWFUL conditions. Hundreds of trees down, took us an hour to go 3 miles. DO NOT RIDE.
