The story of the Luge Flag

By Michael Pierson

The story is this: at the transition point between Santiago Truck Trail and The Luge is a ridgeline mount, and at the top of the mount a retired Marine posted an American flag and the USMC colors. Every Memorial Day a group of mountain bikers trek to the top and replaces the tattered flags. The reward for our effort is riding down The Luge.

Find detailed information on the Santiago Truck Trail HERE.
