Climb : The only way up via single track. It sucks; but is rideable. (Until Neverland is completed)
Descend : Fast. Some minor sidehill. Rocks. Roots.
Don't drink the water at this area, the smell should clue in all but the thirstiest of individuals (black swamp/poo)

Access Info

There is a rock roll feature on Rusty on the East side of the trail, this is Sidewinder. If coming from top, follow Rainbow (North) until you hit a barely visible 3-way intersection. Head down (right) and enjoy.

Our reroute for the river portion of Sidewinder is complete, you will cruise right into it as you descend. It is going to be a pretty punchy...

Very wet, lots of mud throughout. Long sections of running water. I would suggest a temporary closure or at least stay off it until it dries out.

 Sidewinder was originally only from Rusty Muffler up to Cow's End. The rest of the trail is called Tripod as this was the original trail in the area and named that for 20 years. Somehow in the last couple of years the it has grown to incorporate Tripod climb up to the Tripod Junction. Too late now but this is the truth, the real truth and nothing but the truth. TOPSOG

 Keep the history lessons flowing.
There is a ridiculous amount of 'Tripod's listed on the map, its kinda nice to have 1 less Smile
