Description

Gravy Train is yet another a two-way singletrack trail that allows trail riders to pedal up the mountain if they’d like, or downhillers to connect across the mountain to access other runs. For pedal-driven rides, Gravy Train can be connected with Beach Cruiser and Bearing Straits for a respectable vertical gain. This trail climbs up the sides of the volcano past 9,800 feet, stopping less than 1,200 feet from the summit.

Since Gravy Train runs across the top of the bike park, it forms a key path to access many of the downhill runs. Many of the DH trails in this section of the park begin off of the bench that Gravy Train runs along, so you’ll undoubtedly end up on this trail at some point in time!
