Description

Follow smooth singletrack to an intersection with a dirt road. Cross the road and watch your speed as you hit a stone staircase down to a ravine. Hike back out and there's more singletrack that curves around the left side of the submarine-shaped rock all the way to the backside. Here you'll find a ramp system that you can ride ride up to the top of the rock and play around on the slickrock.

There's fantasitc scenery in all directions. Enjoy the view, then turn around the return the same way. Super fun!
