Description

The Juniper Trail is a downhill-only intermediate run that connects from Paper Route all the way down to the Juniper Springs Resort. This laid back trail helps anchor the easy side of Mammoth Mountain Resort. While other aspects of the mountain are filled with uber-gnarly double black diamond trails, the Juniper Springs side is filled with delightful, mellow intermediate trails.

Well-built berms and rolling grade reversals help riders maintain speed and flow in some places but in between those bike-optimized features, riders can expect classic singletrack punctuated by small rocks and roots.
