West/East Magnolia - Nederland

This Thursday, we are headed back up to Nederland! We plan to ride the West Magnolia trail system. Depending on desires and skills, a group may peel off to ride the East Magnolia section (the Dot trails) or climb School Bus. All of the West and East Mag trails involve beginner/intermediate single track, with some technical sections and climbs to keep it spicy. As always, there will be an easier ride group, and all groups are no drop - no one is left behind.

To carpool, meet at the
Justice Center parking lot and be ready to go by 5:10 p.m. (at the latest) or meet at the trailhead by 5:45 p.m. To get to the trailhead, take 119 south from Nederland for approx 3/4 miles to the trail head on the west side of the road. You can also follow Magnolia Rd, cross 119 and you are at the parking lot. Yes, we are using the trailhead directly on the Peak to Peak Hwy.

Dinner will follow at Backcountry Pizza in Nederland.
