Great section of singletrack with a little mix of everything. It starts off from the top like a typical XC trail, then gets really fun with nicely placed rocks and quick dips and punchy climbs. The trail levels off onto a big rock sandstone slab with a 360 degree views of the surrounding sandstone cliffs. There is a really fun rocky sections that utilizes the big embedded stones to roll into the next transition. This trail is relatively new to the Klondike Bluffs area, and is now one of my favorite loops to hit when rolling into town from the north.
