The Sidewinder trail is the one fast, flowy trail at Racker named after the Kingdom Trails namesake. It is the prize after the relentless climbing on Stimulus. Sidewinder dives into a steep valley, building up speed as it rockets across and up the valley sides, smoothing out to a high speed cruise to the end of the valley and into a twisty singletrack section. The climb back out at the end efficiently snuffs out the euphoria. Sidewinder is considered a section of the Stimulus trail but was broken out to a separate trail to simplify map navigation when riding Stimulus from North to South.

This trail is unsanctioned.
