Sixth Sense has a little of everything and provides challenge to all skill levels of riders. It has sections that are moderately rocky and technical as well as some smooth flowy bits. It was designed and built by Evergreen Southwest for the MTB community, but it should be noted that this is a two-way multi-user trail. While it can be ridden at high speed, you need to keep your eyes open for the occasional hiker or horse. On busy days, when the lot is full, it’s also discouraged to pedal up the trail.

Access Info

Park at the main lot and then either climb up Murphy's grade or the 1070 road. It can also be shuttled descending Ross's grade from the Upper Thrillium parking lot.

      couple of mud holes up higher, and some of the lower berms are a little damp/slippy, but overall it's riding excellent

      Amazing how it’s dried out quite a bit from two days ago! Didn’t go to the top top so not sure on the puddle situation.

      Puddles abound in top quarter of trail. Squishy spots here and there. Primo lower half.

       An absolute classic blue trail. Intermediate features but fun for every rider. Can be ridden as fast or as slow as you like and has enough interest to make it rideable dozens of times a season. Graded perfectly!

       This trail is a lot of fun! After some in our group got more than they bargained for on the upper half of Cold Creek, we decided to hit this trail up to finish our descent. If you want steep and technical, this isn't for you, but if you like jumps and flow, it's great. The builders did a great job, with a section of bermy goodness in the "middle" of the trail that is something to behold. Next time out I would climb the road (Murphy's Grade sucks IMO), and ride this and/or the lower half of Cold Creek depending on who I was with and what type of trail I was after.

       It's like the builder's goal was to create an enduro stage with everything great that the PNW has to offer. Seriously fun.

       Can people stop riding up this? Realize that folks are coming down at a good clip.... Don't want to ruin anyone's day.

       Awesome enduro trail with rocks, roots, and flowy berms with the occasional jump and drop thrown in. Like lower Cold Creek but with less tech and fewer and smaller jumps.
