Description: The Mag 7 ride is an awesome shuttle. The terrain is fairly intermediate and not super steep. Expect a long ride that is almost all slightly downhill. The exception is near the end of the ride, where you’ll encounter a short, challenging pedal through a sandy wash (called Gold Bar Rim) and then a relatively long climb (4km or so) on the Gemini Bridges jeep road. Continue down on the jeep road and this gets you out to Highway 191.
From there, you can either drive (if you left a retrieval car) or ride back into town on the road or bike trail (mostly downhill and flat back into town).
Key trails are: Getaway Start –> Bull Run –> Great Escape –> Little Bridges –> Gold Bar Rim to Gemini Bridges jeep road, back down to Highway 191.
