    Cholla is a tough climb. It's 4-7 minutes for most mountain bikers. It has several steep turns with ruts in them and 2-3 rocky technical climbs. At present, there is a easy dirt bypass for the first rocky section, but the second one is still a challenge. I use Granny gear almost the entire way.

    This trail taught me how to climb on a bike. It took over a year to learn how to clear it without stopping, now we race to see who can climb it the fastest.

    Very quick singletrack. You can park in the neighborhood, ride down for a quick adrenaline boost, turn left at the bottom, ride back up the neighborhood streets and be back to work before anyone knows you were gone!

    Steep rocky technical incline. If you like the uphill stuff this is short, steep, and challenging right up to west ridge.
