Overview

An amazing set of trails in the heart of the South Side. Be prepared, since there are some very steep hills to climb!

Description

This loop ride connects several singletracks and gravel roads in the south side. The first part is quite steep, but it gets a little bit better further along. Still, a lot of climbing to do, both on the trails and on paved roads.

The efforts are rewarded by several amazing views of the city. There are also several obstacles, such as small stair sets (in all cases there's some room on the side), a couple of rock gardens, and four or five technical climbs.

There are several other trails in the zone that link to the trails on the map, so be careful to stay on the right path and use the MTB Project mobile app to stay on the ride.

You could bypass this challenging trail-rut going up on the paved road, but give it a try!

I'm sure there is a worse mountain biking trail somewhere on Earth, but I haven't found it yet. This 'trail' sucks. 7mi
