NEW, NEW -- Note Regarding The Rock Sports Complex/Crystal Ridge-
The Rock Sports Complex, formerly Crystal Ridge, now includes a gravity park with chairlift accessed runs. MOST of the Rock is no longer free to ride-- trail passes are required. The Rock trail builders did redesign trails in Mangan Woods (Alpha Trail) on the County Park land with a new climb and descent, both of which are free.
The Alpha Trail remains open when dry with a route returning from the bottom of the old Craters line back to Alpha Trail return along the river. . Please respect all closures.
As always, ride with caution and RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
As with all trails, DO NOT RIDE WHEN TRAILS ARE WET OR CLOSED.
