Mountain View Trail - Sun, Sand, Snow - CRASH - Rinse and Repeat
First ride Saturday at Mountain View Trail, I didn't even know this trail existed! This trail is the best marked trail I have seen, with lots of interconnecting inner-loops, each marked with a bright arrow. I rode the outside loop, which just came in under 9 miles, with an elevation gain of 1,027 feet. Much like Alien Run (which is on the opposing canyon ridge), the course has lots of varied terrain mixed in, some decent climbing, and almost 2 miles of return downhill. I had a blast even though I crashed out twice, but lets just say the second sand-eater wasn't my fault... Enjoy!
