After the long climb from Bobby Pin, Emu Run through to ABC Switchbacks, City view is a little easier going. The trail traverses the hillside with only a few small technical distractions over a very slight climb.
Red Rock Lookout steps it up a bit with far more rocks in the trail, tighter turns, steeper turns and a greater ascent. After climbing some 400m of vert the mind tricks and screaming lungs make this section much tougher than it really is. I suspect superhuman XC types with their carbon 29er hardtails fly up Red Rock Lookout with ease.
The trail had only recently re-opened when I shot the video, as you can see itís very fresh. They were forced to re-cut the trail after an asbestos clean up was completed. You certainly canít complain about the new track.
Red Rock Lookout pops out right at the entrance of Rockyís which is further up than before the re-cut.
The end of Red Rock Lookout is a great place to take a break, thereís even a cafť (if you can find your way through the roadies).
But be warned .. the pain isnít over. Rockyís and Tall Trees still await!
