A Rossland, cross country classic is a showcase for intermediate mountain biking and a great spin around Monte Cristo Mountain. Techno Grind packs a lot into its short loop – short rock slabs, rooty forest floors, mild uphills, and quick, punchy descents that will have you wishing for more. It is a popular, multi-use trail. Super fun in either direction. Clockwise is a fast choppy descent followed by a meandering climb. Counter-clockwise is a fast twisty rip through loamy forest followed by a stiff climb.

Access Info

Access from Drifter and Monte Christo Road (clockwise), or KC (counter-clockwise).
