Overview

This ride has everything. Small drops, punchy climbs, jumps, singletrack, and dirt roads.

Description

Start out Climbing up to the start of 5 Oak from Canyon View Park. Once up at the start of 5 Oaks you'll hit a fast down hill with some sharp turns and 3 drops. It is singletrack and pretty technical. At the bottom of 5 Oaks enjoy a flowy trail along a stream with 3 bridge crossings. 5 Oaks Trail is about 0.7 miles in length. Then enjoy a pedal on a dirt road transitioning across the bottom of the canyon to Cholla Trail.

Cholla Trail is a short punchy climb to get back to the top of the ridge to transition over to Rock-It Trail

Rock-it Trail is a fast flowy trail with a technical rock top decent. Best to carry a lot of speed over the rock decent surface as it make it smoother and less likely you'll get pulled into the ruts.

This Loop is not for beginners. Advanced riders and above. Watch for hikers and enjoy.

Two new turns, but otherwise 5 Oaks is still really fun.
