Cross-Country Riding in the Bike Park
Pioneer is open for business! The new blue cross-country trail is about 3.5 miles of singletrack above Thunderhead. It is a multi-directional/multi-use trail, so expect a few hikers and riders climbing. I’ll typically need to yield to two or three groups of users every time. It’s usually no problem, but keep it in mind.
Well, that’s the end. You can either coast down the road to the base of the Bike Park or take a left and climb a little bit of the road. That will link you back into the Bike Park at the top of Zig Zag and Wrangler Gulch. Both will be XC bike friendly. I reset my trip computer at the top of this ride, and it’s 7.8 miles from the start of Pioneer to the end of Creekside. That’s a lot of XC descending! If you added Cathy’s Cutoff into Sunshine, then over to Zig Zag, you’d have a proper enduro course.
