Rent Money is one of the first "bike-optimized" multi-use trails in the South Hills. It is generally wider and twistier than other local trails, and has rollers, doubles and banked turns. Although built with downhill riding in mind, it is a non-directional multi-use trail.

Access Info

Rent Money runs between Top of the World on the top of Rodney Ridge and the Roger Fuchs Trail. Please remember that there is no parking allowed in the Cox Lake area

      Fun downhill. Some freeze thaw. A few inches of snow everywhere. Quite a bit of boot pack in the middle of the track.
