Trail Description
About this trail
Smooth and often challenging singletrack that climbs up to the ridge and the skirts along the top of the ridge with some cool views and steep descents. A thrilling ride anytime, but icing on the cake when ridden in conjunction with Prime Cut and/or The Kessel Run.

Review: Great Trail. The ridgeline riding is awesome for newer riders that have never done anything like this. Check out the video here.

Review: My favorite of all the trails at 18 road. If you start at the main parking lot then you'll have a 15-20 minute easy climb on the main road. At the trailhead you'll continue to climb a little before you get into the super fun rolling part. After you cross the service road you enter a dirt park with lots of jumps and banked turns. Easy to avoid if you're a beginner. Definitely check this one out!

Review: Probably the most dynamic trail i've ever ridden. Quick lung buster incline gets you to the top of the ridge, then boom, you see it. Rip through the ridgeline and take a 60 ft drop on hardpack. Come out smiling and cross the road to Mo Joe and take a series of berms and jumps back to the TH. Awesome run!

Review: A playful ridge ride that compliments the whole 18 road system. Makes you feel like you rode something more advanced than it is.

Review: This trail is awesome, and very ridable if you're not an expert. It will make you pay attention, however. Great views.

Review: This is a great downhill. Not as advanced as Zippedy, but more jumps, faster berms and well maintained. I took Prime Cut up and Joes' ridge down then Kessle Run the rest of the way.

Review: I rode this in conjunction with Prime Cut, Kessel Run, parts of the Edge Loop and Zippety and I have to say this was my favorite part of the whole ride. Challenging and satisfying climb followed by a fast, fun and thrilling downhill. Fairly short but definitely sweet.
