    Outdoor Recreation Alliance \"ORA Trails\"

New in fall of 2020, part of the Grandad Bluff Trails as a partnership with City of La Crosse / Outdoor Recreation Alliance / IMBA Trail Solutions / VeloCity Projects. Built By Rock Solid Trail Contractors. This trail has tight corners, with one rock roll into a corner, a couple smaller rock drops, and some small rock gardens. This is a good example new school singletrack with an old school feel. Preferred direction of Travel is Downhill, but some people have tested their technical climbing abilities on this trail. Please watch for hikers as this is a shared use system.
