“This is a big climb featured at the end of the Hixon 50 race, leading to a more relaxed portion.”
— Michael Borst
Use caution over the technical portion of the climb and descent.
This is a long climb essentially from the base of a bluff to the top. With this long consistent climb towards the top, you'll also have some rocks, steps, and uneven footing to traverse. Once you see the giant white weather ball you know you have made it to the top. You can also head up or down a portion of Bicentennial that has been newly constructed.
Once you've surmounted the hills, you'll have a flat portion of trail to look forward to. The final portion of the trail is singletrack, but nothing terribly exciting. This is the perfect place to catch your breath. You can use this trail for a good spike in the heart rate, followed by a connection to other trails in the park.
