A collection of closely-packed switchbacks from the summit.

Runner Notes

The tightly packed turns and mild tech on Sidewinder are great if you're looking for an easy grade to to and from the summit.

Description

At the top, Sidewinder begins off of the North Viewpoint Trail and follows a series of tightly packed switchbacks that mosey their way down to the unmarked intersection with Bonnie and Clyde's. From there, the trail wraps around the mountain to fade into the Service Road at the intersection with Drop Down.

The many switchbacks on Sidewinder make for easy going in either direction, but at times it can make progress feel slow. This has led to widespread "corner cutting" and resulting damage and erosion.

Don't cut corners! If you're anxious to get somewhere more quickly, check out the nearby Ginny's Trail or Drop Down for more direct options.
