Trail 2

This morning I walked the under construction section of Lower Trail 2. That is the trail number designated on the planning map. We will come up with a cool trail name by Summer 2020.  The IMBA and A-Basin crews have built some sweet turns and have done some very nice rock armoring. This trail is designed for downhill mountain biking. Right now, construction is moving downhill and is just crossing Black Mountain Express lift line near Tower 3. Below that, the future trail crosses Lower, Lower Standard, Slalom Stadium and Bear Trap before making a few switchbacks in The Glen (between Pali Wog and The Rock Garden) where it starts heading back to the Base Area. It will be a fun, rolling, exciting ride.
