Triple Crown consists of three short, interconnected loops off the north side of Foothill Rd near West Twin. To get to Triple Crown, begin at Four Corners and head west. Ride up Foothill Rd toward Paradise Point. After passing the gate on the way to Paradise Point, look for an over grown dirt road descending to the right. This is the entrance to the West Crown. Turkey Filters (huge dirt piles to keep motorized vehicles out) block the entrance, but mountain bikers are allowed to ride there. When you come to a new logging road, temptation is to turn to the first right, but just continue straight on the road (bearing neither left or right) and you’ll be back on singletrack in no time. To head back to Foothill Rd after completing the West Crown, just keep heading uphill and you’ll hit it eventually. If you decide to ride Middle Crown, look for a singletrack descending on the left during the climb back to Foothill Rd.
The Middle Crown starts with a singletrack descent that has a small water crossing at the bottom. As you emerge from the singletrack, you will find a clearing with logging roads downhill and uphill. Turn uphill (to the right) on the main road to keep going on Triple Crown. If you intend to do the East Crown, take your first left after heading up hill a bit. If you're heading back to Foothill Rd, just keep heading uphill. If you go to the downhill road, you will reach a yellow gate. Past that gate, about 4-500 hundred feet, Queen Mary's Revenge heads off downhill to your right.
The 3rd crown of Triple Crown is CLOSED due to logging. Instead, ride up an old road named QMR Rd to get back to Foothill Rd.
