Description

This newly made (summer 2014) trail connects Lupine to the top of Quarry Mountain. Due to the very mellow grade and tons of sharp switchback turns, this trail is probably better ridden up than down, but it is certainly fun in either direction!

It also passes through some beautiful forest terrain. Pines, aspen, ferns, and all kinds of lovely forest smells await you.

Since it is a new trail and fun to ride, it can get quite busy on weekends.

If it's been dry for a while, expect the switchbacks on this trail to be covered in deep "moondust" dirt.

Great intermediate climb, you're pedaling for a long time, but nothing tech and shaded most of the time. 4mi — 0h 45m
