This double-track-to-single-track loop will get your heart pumping! From the moderate climb to the screaming and narrow downhills this route has a little bit of everything for the intermediate and advanced riders. Beginning mountain bike riders should exercise on narrow sections.

Gorgeous though can be dangerous horse backing.

The part on the rainbowtrail is very dangerous for horsebackriding, because it is a one lane trail and heavily traveled from motorcycles. Very often you can not see around the next corner and people driving like they are on a highway.
