Description

Enlightenment is the only climbing trail available at the bike park, though it runs mostly outside of the park itself. It is long and steep in places with many switchbacks. Take it slow if needed, as the high altitude makes such a climb very difficult and physically demanding. Typical times to complete range from 45 minutes to an hour and a half.

Difficulty

Moderate

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.
