Family Friendly The teenagers RAVED about these trails during the NICA finals. Hmmm... They must be pretty fun!

You must be a TMTA member, Lehigh employee, or a guest. Also closed annually for the SoCal NICA finals in May. TMTA annual Family Membership is a mere $35.

Description

Easily accessible from the Jane's Loop and Warrior Loop, this latest addition to the TMTA/Lehigh Trails system is another fun and flowing one with a focus on maintaining speed and momentum.

A series of downhill berms really emphasize this aspect of the trail. The 2016 SoCal NICA finals were hosted here, so we wanted to have more of the course visible from the meadow/camping area. Mission accomplished.

It made for a great venue and provided spectacular views of the kids shredding the trails from multiple angles. Some of the fans even walked up on course to see the action up close and personal.

The new connector on the last part of this trail is a bit rough at the moment but we just built it in August/September 2016. It's a work in progress. It will get better over time and as it gets ridden more.

Sunsets are epic in this area. Cacti live amongst the granite on the NICA loop. TMTA/Lehigh Trails, Tehachapi, California.
