Great trail and random open spots to stop and play some catch with my four legged friend

The trailhead can be difficult to locate, as the sign is very small. This is an easy trail and goes up to a small reservoir that is dog friendly, which is mainly why I go. There is very little shade and can be very hot in summer.

Amazing ride down but the ride up is insane. One of the best trials around for mountain biking for all levels.

Badass trail. Climb up and it gives one of the best workouts, great sustained climb. then when you get to the top and turn and burn, the speed at which you rip it is completely limited by the rider. Nicely banked curves with mixed flowing jumps. I suggest starting at the bottom of the chutes and ride all the way up to the Captain Jack trailhead and then bring it back to the truck, round trip is somewhere in the neighborhood of 10.5 miles.

This one is fast. Make sure you start on gold came rd. otherwise you'll have to walk a long way uphill. Lots if fun though! Make sure your brakes work. :)

This trail is a blast to go down - super fast and smooth. It takes about 2 minutes to go down the mile and a half or so of "chutes" to get down to the reservoir.

Its great you can go slow or fast, any skill level can ride this. Watch out if your flying down there are two random trees in the middle of the trail

I love this trail. It's a prefect trail if you're looking for some nice easy single track trails. I can handle this thing at full speed on a hard tail, no problem. So it isn't too challenging. The trail is super flowy, with bermed corners. This is the kind of trail you can just bomb it down, railing every turn. Lots of fun, very little challenge on a bike, if you have a decent idea how to handle the bike. I can handle this thing at full speed on a hard tail, no problem. So it isn't too challenging.
