If you want to see some unicorns you are going to have to get up high. This is the primary climb trail that will bring up to the top of Snow White and the Seven Wasps as well as entry points to Atlas Shrugged, Pinch and Roll, Purple People Pleaser, Nimby. It provides a quieter, less dusty and more unicorn infused experience up the mountain. The bottom section up to Nimby is lower grade and then becomes a more traditional climb trail grade. This is a multi-use trail that can be used in both directions. It was built with the up in mind and only suitable for beginner downhill riders. Downhill riders should yield to people climbing. Continue on the main FSR if you are trying to get to the very top of Atlas Shrugged and Snow Mexican.

Access Info

Starts at the base staging area just to the left of the information kiosk.

      Some small wet sections 3/4 of the way up. 3 fallen trees a couple switch backs from the top. Easy to get over. Rest of the trail is riding great.

       Fantastic climb trail, well built and clearly a lot of work went into clearing the trees and picking a sustainable route up the mountain. A couple of muddy spots where springs run out, best to get off and walk those sections. It can be difficult to find the trail at the top of Nimby, but once youre there head downhill towards the main shuttle road, go about 100m, past the first single track trail and take a left up the second single track (gps might have it labeled as a different trail). From there follow the natural flow of the trail as it crosses the shuttle road a few more times.
