A fun up and down with a mix of tech and flow, hand built but uses a two short sections of the Pipeline. Great view of Mt. Madison.

In winter The Strand is groomed for fat bikes, as conditions allow. Also look out for snow machines in winter along the east end of the Pipeline.

Access Info

From Old River Road and the Pipeline

       Fun trail! The first 100ish yards after Old River Rd is up a steep hill on a gravel road, then the singletrack splits off to the right at the top of the hill.
