    Cochran\'s Ski Resort

A winding bench-cut trail with fun corners and rolling terrain. A few rough sections, but mostly smooth and flowing. There are optional jumps, and a small rock-roll, but no mandatory features. The trail is narrow at times. This is a good trail for beginner-to-intermediate riders to take on as a challenge.

Access Info

Climb up Mothers Day and keep left at the first main intersection. Head up the Skully's climb and the trail starts at a flat-landing next to a big rock. The trail is marked with a sign.
