This Slate Rock is a large stone outcropping which hangs above Pilot Cove at just over 3600 feet. This short ride takes you to the top of the rock for the view and then immediately back down. It’s steep going up and very steep coming down. At the top, you’ll ride on bare rock and get an astounding view. This ride's surface is all single track. The hightlights include a quiet fern-filled cove, beaver bog, challenging (may have to push) ascent, bare rock riding, great view, and a very steep descent.
