Trail is riding well right now and there are no reports of mud, deadfall, or snow.

Sidewinder is a fast, flowy and fun hardpacked trail. Sidewinder has good sightlines and ample opportunities for speed, so you can really fly on the (very rare) occasion that the trail is empty. In drier months Sidewinder gets really sandy, but in the spring it’s mint. Sidewinder is a popular climb, often looped with Fat Tire Traverse and Freestone Ridge.

Recent Trail Reports

  • pneisen May 17, 2018 at 5:56 pmVery tacky after the recent rains. Small puddle near the bottom and the bigger one at the top. Other than that, riding great.
  • oldmanhair April 8, 2018 at 2:48 pmHero dirt, rode at like 11am, super tacky and no puddles, all the wind yesterday dried out the trails. Plus, no one is out!, PS, the bottom is dry also, that is the area that normally is trashed.

    Surprisingly in good condition. A little softness at the bottom, but not leaving ruts. Should be great tomorrow.

    Looked at it from Crestline (came down from Hulls) and decided to turn around. The bottom looked very muddy.
