Cool singletrack with some great views of McCoy Flats. Nice flow and sweet layout. Challenging and enjoyable.

    One of the better trails the McCoy Flats with nice variety and enough technicality to keep you interested.

    Of the McCoy trails I enjoyed Slippery the most. The trail is more raw than the others (which I find appealing). There is a bit of everything, you will feel iso, huge views, and I like how it is its own loop that hooks right back into Retail. CCW ride.

    This is one of two more techncial options off of the main Retail Sale route. Unlike Fire Sale, this one branches off Retail Sale as an intependent 5-mile addition. With a nice combo of flow punctuated with techy bits, this was my favorite in the McCoy Flats System.

    Of the trails I rode this was my favorite, Good mix of XC flow and technical bits.

    Nice flow on this trail, great alternative to Retail Sale when you need something different.

    Ridden only counter clockwise this is a radical singletrack that just waits to be tested. Good xc flow.
