Scout's route is an intermediate singletrack descending down from the Snowkirk Lift. Technically, it runs directly into the Girl Scouts trail, a beginner-level singletrack, to complete the descent to the bottom of the mountain.

Description

Taken together, these two trails provide an easier downhill option in the Kirkwood Bike Park, as compared to the more technical trails descending from the top of the Caples Crest lift.

Difficulty

Mostly stable trail tread with some variability, with unavoidable obstacles 8in/20cm tall or less. Other obstacles such as rock gullies and steep sections may exist. Ideal for lower intermediate riders.
