On the low end, it features some quiet, shaded forest areas and then climbs, often steeply, up to some sunny slopes to Bandersnatch.

Lizard

Lizard is a great introduction to the two-miles of Jabberwocky that immediately follow. Lizard is a shorter taste of nicely banked turns, doubles, swooping dives and potential for air. The singletrack starts off the upper part of Caterpillar at a somewhat confusing sign. Take the right turn, marked for “Downhill bikes only” which really means bikes in a downhill direction only. Soon, you’ll be cruising down an easy, gentle straightaway that quickly becomes tightly-banked turns and…

The trail begins by descending along a ridge to the northwest and then turns west, still descending, to where the actual loop begins. Note the bear scratches on madrones and the variety of plant life. Some endangered plant species can be found right along this trail, which is adjacent…
