  • Global Ranking

A less grueling climb than Climbax with a fun flowing downhill. The swtichbacks at the bottom of the hill have no berms and so need to be taken more slowly than you might want given the loose nature of the dirt. It's a new trail so it's still pretty raw and needs some love from the trail crew but it has all the ingredients for a great loop. Please don't ride this if it's wet as you'll definitely destroy the trail. It's all fairly loose dirt with no undergrowth to hold it in place.

Access Info

Hang a left at the top of the steps (you can ride up them) and then proceed up a gentle climb with a few switchbacks and one good dip roll before topping out on the ridge and taking the downhill.

New trail. Still pretty raw. Don't ride in the wet.

The opening climb is killer (could it be made more flowy and/or fun), but once at the top it's a good time. Raking would be great! Lots of...
