East Ridge Trail

Average Rating:    (2.25 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

This trail has many very sharp switchbacks (kind of like Bear Mtn downhill) and is kind of steep and narrow. I would judge the uphill aspect as nearly un-doable (for me at least). But the downhill is really technical, narrow, dangerous, and fun! I have entered from the spur road off the Mt Lukens road described here - see mt lukens or haines canyon trails (about 1 mi east of the Lukens summit). The begining is really rough, but there are a small group of people rebuilding the trail so this will be repaired soon.

Summary:
I'm not sure what the previous two reviews are talking about, but I'm sure happy with this track. It is often steep and in some areas quite narrow (def not for the faint hearted) but other sections are almost wheelchair accessible. This is a very diverse track, and is very challenging trials type ridding. I have been on it 3x now and the best was right after a rain (better stopping traction).

Recommended Route:
Pickens spur to Dunsmore Canyon
