Possibly the most technical ride in Fort Collins, Wathen is a rowdy descent with everything from technical rock sections, rock rolls, roots, tight corners and fast dirt. Wathen is best accessed by climbing the road up Southridge. This trail is technically bi-directional so keep an eye out for hikers as it's easy to get fast and rowdy going down Wathen.

 Not even close to the most technical descent but awesome. Check out Howard or Ginny if your looking for technical.
