Highlights: Classic West Eagle Ride

This trail is one of the shortest, most to the point rides in West Eagle.  It is a good starter ride to see what riding in West Eagle is all about.  The ride features a lot of climbing, some sections steeper than others. As seen in the profile the ride climbs to the top of World’s Greatest and then descends nearly to the end.  The last climb up Tick Alley is long and grueling and you may need to walk your bike towards the end.  Views from the top of World’s Greatest are spectacular.  The descent on World’s Greatest is difficult and controversial.  Ride within your ability through this section as it is steep, windy and often on loose conditions.  Elmers offers some fun downhill that you can take at a faster speed.  The ride ends with a short climb back up School House Rock and then downhill to the end.
