Trail Description
About this trail
Sweet fast singletrack that you can ride after heading up Prime Cut or head up 18 Road to the Joe's/Prime Cut/Kessel Junction. The trail is narrow slalom like trail with dips and tight twisty turns. Locals say it can be used an out and back, but with the amount of people coming back down, its not recommended. And you can always say "I made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs"

Review: This is a brilliantly constructed singletrack that will have you in heaven from top to bottom. It's not steep or really tricky but smooth and fast. It's fun, fun, fun...

Review: Another one of those trails that makes you want to break the sound barrier on. Just glad it's made so well that other things don't get broken too.

Review: Kessel Run is like the friendly little brother of Zippity-do-da. It's fast, flowy, and smooth but without super steep sections and dropoff ledges on the side of the trail. Might be a good warmup run to get your guts ready for Zippity. Keep in mind that this is located in the North Fruita Desert so it gets HOT in the summer. I did it in less than twelve parsecs.

Review: This trail is loads of fun for riders of all abilities. You can't find a better way to end a day's ride. It can be ridden up but I wouldn't try it anytime except during very light traffic on the trails. In fact, it would be best if they designated it "down only" like PBR.

Review: Kessel is a blast downhill. Flowing with a few jumps. Beware of the pink tape on the top, it may lead you directly into the trees. As of 8/23/12 the trail has become packed due to the recent rain.
