Extremely fun switchback, singletrack. Although Trailforks users ride this predominantly downhill, it is the closest climbing route to steeper downhill tracks descending in this area of the park.

       Nice descent with turns and berms , A couple of alternative jumps( no rock garden) , just flowing and flowing, nice trail to practice your turns.
      It was sweeter after climbing it, it is very steep and challenging , but it gives you time to take breath before each steep section.

       This uphill trail rewards you with a sweet return. Don't let the mileage fool you, as it climbs over 750 feet. If you don't want to dab, pace yourself in between the switchbacks, as they will ask 110% to roll. Another great hill to ride for time.

       Steep Bermed trail with tight turns, braking bumps and a few jumps.

       Primarily a downhill trail, busy with hikers on the weekends. Please take Mathis up if you want to session Meadows or Mentally Sensitive. I’ve come across way too many MTBers riding up this and that’s just a collision waiting to happen..

       PLEASE STOP RIDING UPHILL! People fly down this thing. It might be a great workout, but I just saw someone get smacked. Thanks yo!
