Trail Overview

The Snow Mesa single track starts at 12,000 feet up on a flat mesa in the tundra. The east end of the trail is not very rocky and is pretty smooth dirt. It's a very straight trail for a long way with epic views from this elevation. It has a couple of washouts to be careful of. Then it drops down a nasty rocky switchback section with some tricky hard enduro moves that would be required if going up. It gets easier after this quarter-mile section and then goes through a pine tree forest down to the west end of the trail, where it dumps out at Highway 149. There is a river crossing required to get to the highway, which has been cut out as a pinch point, but it makes it more difficult to cross.

Difficulty

This trail is a 7 difficulty due to the one rocky climb with switchbacks, otherwise, the rest of the trail is pretty easy.
