Jake the Snake Trail
Jake the Snake is a singletrack trail above The Ranches at Eagle Mountain. It climbs to the cell towers on the hill above the Pony Express Parkway. The trail is narrow and a bit rough. The ride is appropriate for upper-intermediate or better riders. The climbing can be handled by a strong early-intermediate, but the descent could be a problem for a rider with poor skills. The trail starts at around 4900 feet elevation and climbs about 350 vertical feet. It passes through outcrops of limestone, mudstone, and sandstone. You'll ride 1.2 miles of singletrack each way to the top of the tower.

Getting there:

Just after climbing the hill, turn left at the stop light onto The Ranches Parkway. At Pony Express Parkway, turn right. When you see that the road will veer to the left in front of a church, turn right and find a spot to park north of the church. To get to Ruby Valley Drive (or the south limb singletrack on Pony Express Parkway), pedal further west along Pony Express on the paved bike path on the north side of the road.
