Lizard Tail runs between Sunrise and Sunset Point and it is the only black diamond on the mountain. This trail has a high wow factor as you ride by exposed cliffsides and scenic views of the valley below. But you'll have to keep your eyes on the trail as you navigate you way through tricky sections of rock and punchy climbs. One point of interest is a large waterfall that cascades over the trail near the southern termination into the shared Rim Trail.
Lizard Tail is named for the Dardanelle School Mascot and was chosen for its tenacity- which you will need on this 2.5 mile advanced trail. We revamped parts of old hiking trail for MTB specific and hiking use and built new sections on the steep rocky hillsides between each lookout point. Preferred ride direction is from sunset to sunrise point. From sunrise to sunset the climbs are more technical.
