While situated within a small area, this chain of 2.5 loops provides riders with some technically challenging trails. Frequent and often dramatic changes in elevation combined with rock creates a superb environment to get the legs burning. Access via the Swift Creek and Lower Climbing trail, the alignment twists and turns through the topography with numerous optional technical trail features and a combination of fast open turns and bench cut trail.

Access Info

Access via "Ale Trail to Town" or "Climb out or Ride in" trails
