Trail shared by Nick Wilder

An easy, enjoyable singletrack ascent to access all the downhill trails.

Description

This is the primary singletrack to get from the lower parking lot to all the downhill trails such as Kessel Run, PBR, Chutes & Ladders, and Joe's Ridge. The real alternative is the road, which is a lot less fun and not much easier.

From the parking lot, cross the road and glide down the hill to a (usually) dried up pond. Head towards the hills passing a few intersections, following the good signs for Prime Cut. The trail climbs continuously through a wash, but never very steeply and it's generally easy. Near the top there are a couple rocks, but this is a good introduction to the area.
