Mountain Biking Switchback

Connects with Cliffhanger and Toad Road. This is an awesome singletrack ride around the side of the mound that is entertaining the entire way! Keep your eyes open for the alternate route up the true switchbacks!

    This was one of my favorite trails at the Mounds! This is a great introduction to riding near ledges. Going over the bridges is a blast! The ledges aren't too big (15 feet high maybe) but the bridges are placed where the ledge falls out, so it's slightly scary! Also very tight in some places.

    Lots and lots of switchbacks (go figure!) Not all of the switchbacks are for climbing up the hill, some are swooping up sides and down the sides of the small valley. Some sand ruins your speed in places.
