A short ride up CBT will get you to the beginning of Mighty Quinn. The Mighty Quinn is a 800m machine built trail. It is one directional: down Hit large doubles, natural step downs, monster berms, and G force corkscrews. This trail is otherwise pretty smooth with a clear connection to Gold Rush at the bottom. The Mighty Quinn is a local shortcut for a ride under one hour when ridden up from the CBT Mainline Trailhead parking area. Beginning with a flat pedally section, the trail quickly requires riders to carry speed through the decent: especially if you plan to clear the doubles. This is one of the trails where you will be breathing as hard at the bottom as you were when you got to it at the top!
