Best Way To Ride Rockstacker

Rockstacker is a 1.6 mile double black diamond singletrack trail located in the Amasa Back Area. It can be accessed by climbing up Amasa Back or Hymasa up to the Pothole Arch trail.

Once on the Pothole Arch trail, ride 1 mile to the Rockstacker trail head sign. Rockstacker begins with a large boulder roll in move, accompanied by a ledgy shelf drop into a short techy up section. The next feature is the crux move of the trail… a large, steep, chunky sandstone ramp slab.

There are many lines to choose from here, which are all extremely technical. The most popular line of choice is staying to the far left. After the crux move, enjoy a brief flowing singletrack section, before the trail begins to gently climb. The next feature is an off camber slickrock switchback, onto a tight shelf. This is followed by a brief climb on a slickrock rim.

At the top of the climb, head left, and keep your eyes open for rock cairns to help navigate the trail. A few techy moves are followed by a decent size drop. Then you emerge onto a singletrack, full of moderate up and down moves. The singletrack tees into a doubletrack road at the Jackson / Rockstacker trail head sign. Proceed down Jackson trail to the Kane Creek parking lot.
