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: Rode Kessels Run for a warm up to the rest of the area. Despite the easy rating I had a blast on this trail. It was perfect for less experienced riders and I look forward to bringing my boys with me next time so they can get some trail riding in!

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.
