Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.
Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.
Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.
High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.
Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extremely exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.
By combining Whiskey Shots and Whiskey with parts of Caples Crest, riders can easily stitch together an advanced-level top-to-bottom run through the Kirkwood Bike Park.
While the run does begin on the doubletrack Caples Crest, it quickly switches to singletrack on the intermediate-rated Whiskey Shots.
Finally, the finish on Whiskey is rated as an advanced-level black diamond trail by Kirkwood. Sources: https://www.kirkwood.com/explore-the-resort/activities-and-events/summer-activities/mountain-biking.aspx
