Description

The new MOOve Over Trail is no exception!

This new addition at Oil Well Flats climbs all the way up from the pavement to reach the rest of the trail network, meaning riders can now park down in the creek bottom for more climbing… and a sweet descent on the way back down!

While the trail may seem steep at first, it’s all climbable even by intermediate riders. The grade remains somewhat steep throughout, but the trail is built sustainably, and the grade is never excessive. You’ll have to work to reach the top, but you may find yourself surprised at just how climbable this trail is.

Of course, every single mountain bike trail is more fun when your tires are pointed down, and this new trail takes the downhill fun to another level! The trail is packed with features that are an absolute riot to rip down. Rock rolls, little kickers, berms, doubles, drops, rock gardens… you name it, you’ll find it here! Despite having a narrow trail tread, there are some alt lines for both easy and difficult options, but in many instances, the narrow tread requires riders hitting the difficult lines to really snipe the landing.

Whether you enjoy climbing or shredding downhill, you’ll love the newest trail at Oil Well Flats!
