(Kowalski's) Sideshow is a fantastic descent that winds it's way down to the Green Mile fire trail, which then can lead onto Corkscrew or Rolling Thunder 2.

The trail begins at the top of the hill at the intersection where Secret Squirrel, Ground Shaker, Web Track, Romper Room and Stairway to Heaven arrive or depart.

On the official app it shows the opening section of Kowalski's Sideshow as "SABN" however that name seems to have been cut, with on trail signage at the start of the trail saying "Sideshow".  So we've gone with this naming convention.

Sideshow is one of the best descents in the East Kowen Forest, with some fast open sections, tricky corners, some really fast and sometimes rough corners, a few jumps and a whole lot of action.  There are also some holding bays along the trail for slower riders to allow others through.  For beginner intermediates you can expect to be tested on some of the steeper and longer descending berms.

Definitely a must do for any trip to the East Kowen Forest.

Blog articles that mention this trail


This website is brought to you by MTB weekend warrior Aaron Markie.
There are plenty of great websites out there with a wealth of information about Mountain Bike Trails,
however in my experience its hard to get a good mix of info, maps, photos and videos of trails I've never ridden.
The idea of this website is to tie those 4 elements together and give you a more detailed look at the MTB Trails I ride.
If you have anything to add then let me know.
