  • Global Ranking

A more technically challenging alternative to Middle and Lower trails. Upper slowly gains elevation as it proceeds up the canyon. Some scattered rock gardens and tricky rock features. This is a blue trail below 420; beyond 420, Upper quickly gets substantially more rocky and technical. Most will walk sections here. If you want to work on your low speed bike handling, this is the trail.
