Phil’s World is a roller coaster of a trail. Ridden clockwise, the expansive loop winds through forest and gains elevation toward an exciting descent filled with drops, simple log jumps, ledges, and a few technical sections. Every climb is rewarded with a smile-inducing, adrenaline pumping descent. The trail begins with the gradual elevation gain to the saddle, into the Coco Race Section which offers a quick reprieve with a fast and twisty descent before another steep, but short climb. After grunting up the Coco Race hill, the Lemonhead section gets adrenaline pumping with ledges, traverses, and quick downhills. Next, the trail drops into the Maze section for a simple log jump and sharp turns, climbing up to the Elbow Section. The Elbow section is the most technical with slickrock riding and maneuvering. The trail smooths out before forking toward the Stinking Springs or directly to the Rib Cage—the best known section of the trail. From the Elbow section on, the trail rewards riders with rapid drops, jumps, twists, and fabulous flows. A roller coaster indeed, Phil’s World is renowned for a reason. The climbs, drops, and technical sections challenge and excite riders throughout every last mile.
