Osha Trail

Average Rating:    (3.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

This trail goes down a mountain, over a long fast FAST straightaway with many jumps off steps, then up the mountain again to about 10,000 feet. Great view. Many other trails leading off it so you can easily bike for either 5-15 miles.

Summary:
WOW..the downhill sections are a gas..rocky, rooty, twisty..great pucker factor on a section of the downhill switchback after the first climb..steep drop off on the left and about a 2-3 ft wide trail with rocks,roots, and twists..don't look left..If your from sea level then the climbs will rip your lungs out..but it's worth it..I'm rating it a 5 on Aerobic difficulty for us Sea Level Riders..They need more air up here..ha ha

Recommended Route:
take first trailhead on the service rd..named Osha Tr..trail starts about 1/4 mile on left..check with High Altitude Bike shop for map..when u get to the bottom of the trail it opens into a pasture (you'll see a bench)go right up hill to complete the loop or take off one of the other trails to make your own..BRING A MAP!!!

Summary:
Pretty good trail. Not as technical as some of the other area trails but a lot of fun. Downhill nets "Hostpital Speed" with several small jumps and a humdinger of an "S" turn at the end. Good all around trail. Try it in May for the High Altitude Classic race. Beau Coup fun!

Recommended Route:
Hit the trail just a block east of the bike shop in Cloudcroft. Get a map at the shop.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Spaghetti bowl, Perk Canyon.
