This trail has lots of down trees. Riding it will probably mean getting off and climbing over and through tree limbs.

  • Marc Fortier November 4, 2016 at 2:10 pmAnd another smaller tree a little bit after you start the CW loop. If you like floating over a carpet of pine needles, this is your trail!

Trail Description

The Duodenum is a lollypop out-and-back ride off of Tyler’s Traverse with an intestine-like hillside on the loop portion. 20 or so heavily banked corners will test your slalom skills.

The singletrack trail which connects to Tyler’s is new as of 2015, as is the up-route (an old road conversion) if you ride the loop clockwise.

The trail is 2 way trail the entire way — yet the loop portion is most often ridden clockwise.
