The South Rim trail is a fun more primitive doubletrack/singletrack trail that has an intermediate width. This trail is a hard climb but a fun downhill. There is loose rock to watch out for that could kick your rear wheel sideways if you are not careful with some line choices.

Access Info

From Glen Alps parking head out to the powerline connection and bike west from the major intersection. You then head down powerline for a short decent and take the first right hand turn on a slightly off camber loose rock turn.

Great riding, snow is thin is places and there are ice spots forming under the trees. Keep doing those snow dances!

Fast and flowy, all the board walks are currently covered up. A few encroaching willow at the top of the trail.
