Our climbing trail magnum opus. Takes the climbable nature of Bottoms Up, and adds some beauty forest, bridge crossings and more difficulty as you get higher into the ascent. May be ridden in the downhill direction, suitable for beginners and small travel bikes, but please respect fellow riders and yield to uphill traffic.

      Trail is clear but is REALLY wet in some spots. Best to get off and push rather than trying to ride through the swamps.

      Muddy in sections. Below Illuminati it's okay. Above illuminati there is some snow and significant mud, so trail damage will occur.
