Sidewinder is well named and features dozens of moderately banked turns which double back on each other creating a ride that feels like something from an amusement park. Bike handling skills will be tested because of the density of turns and proximity of the trees. Many optional rock rollovers and log rides are also featured.
Sidewinder is also a fun trail to ride up, but use caution as downhill riders are often only looking 10 ft ahead of their tire.
