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: Not a hard trail, but it is a fast trail! Put the pedal to the metal.

Review: Very gently down-sloping intermediate track that flows but not always well. It does have it's own magic in a natural, old-school way. You won't get a lot of air off it. It doesn't compare to modern flow trails with their big swooping berms and easy-landing jumps. And get this - it's two way!!!

Review: Two miles of non stop fun without so much as a pebble in your way. Bobsledding action along a slight draw.....you will want to ride it more than once.

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!
