Thanks to the magic of very hard work, Roots X is once again open for business as of Sep 20, 2018. Continuation of Hyperextension, most people will not realize they are on a differently-names trail. Flowy rooty single track in and out of dark forest. Kicks out on River Road Extension - slow down as you reach the road by the yellow gate.

Access Info

Starts where Hyperextension and Roots Resurrection meet. Either ride it from the top of Hyperventilation, or you could ride up Roots Resurrection to get to it, or up the River Road Extension spur.
