Follow the yellow markers to the top of the hill. This provides a nice climb with a few technical obstacles such as creek-crossings and small rock gardens. Near the summit of the hill, there is a steep punchy climb with a fallen tree that cuts across the trail. If you choose to descend this way, the tree makes for a nice step down that you can huck at high speeds. In fact, the easiest descent starts with that bit of steep trail and the tree that you probably rode up if you followed the yellow markers. For the easiest descent, turn onto the trail with the blue markers, called Hutcheon. Upon descending you will find yourself at another creek crossing, and from there you may take the yellow or blue trail back to the trailhead. The descent is characterized by mostly flowing terrain, but with the occasional rock garden or unexpected turn. There are a few obstacles to ride such as two creek-crossings and a few steep rocky sections. The entire loop takes no more than 45 minutes.
It is not a mountain bike specific trail, yet it is somewhat flowy and nice.Thank |
