A short side trail to challenge you.

Jon Sundquist

Overview

Description

This is a side loop that adds some gratuitous technical riding in, just for the fun of it.

It starts and ends on the Golden Hill Blue Loop. It's almost always done starting at the higher trailhead. Look for the Whammy sign and start on some unassuming singletrack. When you reach the creek, you have the option of crossing and doing just the lower whammy. Instead, stay left and do a short climb before the trail curves right and descends. This is not a steep descent, but there are some rocky sections.

Soon you'll reach the above mentioned short cut. This time, take it across the creek and descend this time on the left bank. Again, the trail offers a few rocky sections requiring skill to navigate.

Soon you'll cross the creek and take another unassuming singletrack back to the Blue Loop.
