“ Wicked fast downhill run from the Grassy Knoll. You lose a lot of hard-earned vertical very fast on this decent but you will not regret it!”

The Ridge of Doom is a fun steep descent from the Grassy Knoll. You head west southwest or to your right as you look toward town and the peaks of the West Elks. It starts out with some steep and a bit rutted relic double track. As it flattens out, you will see The Plunge drop off to your left. You will stay on the ridge and work your way around to the right side of the rocky spine. You then come back out on the top of ridge and drop down a very steep, loose and exciting little pitch. The trail goes up for just a minute and then you fly down through a fast, rutted flowy section until the trail ends at CC’s Corner. You lose a lot of hard-earned vertical very fast on this decent but you will not regret it!
