Creamsicle Rainbow is the only intermediate (blue) trail located in the Emerald No Flow Zone. It’s a very short trail, descending down from Shit Happens to Highway 99. The trail may be ridden in either direction, but flows best when descended. Creamsicle Rainbow may be used as an exit from the No Flow Zone, if you’ve gotten in over your head, or ridden up to access this area. Overall the trail is much less technical than most located here; however, it still contains several rocks and roots along its route that will challenge the inexperienced rider. The trail also serves as a bypass to the Rainbow subdivision, popping out just northeast of this area.

Access to Creamsicle Rainbow is via the southwest end of Shit Happens, a few pedal strokes north of where Anal Intruder crosses Shit Happens. Look for the unmarked trail to head right when riding Shit Happens from Alpine or Rainbow.
