Lower Pratt single track a fun and extremely technical trail full of rock gardens all over the place. You do not want to be caught dead on this trail with a hard tail. This is a good trail for the end of a ride because it puts you out at a parking lot at the end. You can either start from the very top of the single track for an added bit of riding or the top of foothill road.

Access Info

Can get dropped off at the top of foothill rd or park at the bottom of the trail head with a little hike a bike and climb.

      Chunk city! You will likely be hiking most of the way up but the descent is chunky rocks the whole way down. Contrary to what the description says, this is rideable on a hardtail.

      Wear a bell! This trail is very, very popular with hikers!

      Very pleasantly surprised with this trail after riding boring trails in the area all day. This trail has rocks littering the trail almost the entire way down. Perfect flow with tech to keep you on your toes. Would highly recommend. Keep an eye out for hikers though.
