This purpose built race course actually serves up some very fun singletrack. Be sure to take this one counterclockwise to maximize the fun factor. Most people think this one is worth it just for the last half mile where a series of 10 bermed, high speed switchbacks cranks up the giggle factor. the trail starts with some less than stellar meadow riding, but immediately gets interesting as you depart the meadow and begin climbing into the juniper covered hills. The climbs are mostly gradual and this is one of those trails where you feel like you're getting more than your fair share of fun for the work put in. Most of the singletrack is buff and swoopy, but there are a couple of optional obstacles, and there are a couple short, but steep downills and narrow places where the junipers will reach out and grab you if you're not careful. Overall, this is one of Eagle's best rides and a must stop if you're in the area. If you ride the Pool and Ice Rink Trail, this makes a nice add-on.
