ecmtb.net presents The Schnitzel, a fun little trail using exposed granite segments linked together to create a flat loop. With no real elevation change but lots of undulations, Schnitzel allows you to push the pace if you want -- in either direction. Built in 2018 by members of the East Coast Mountain Bike .net (ecmtb.net), partnered with MRWA.

Access Info

Starts and ends on The Attic trail, near the intersection of Osprey trail and The Attic.
