No Girlie Man is a tough and rough trail, not for everyone. The route will throw everything it has at you; from gnarly rocks, to loose and steep chutes, and technically challenging climbs. Access to No Girlie Man is via White Knuckles, located about two thirds of the way down the trail. Look for the metal etched trailhead sign, once you arrive at the fork; straight ahead (east) is No Girlie Man, while White Knuckles continues on to the right. No Girlie Man spits out on to Hwy 99; 200 m south of Autumn Drive, the entrance to Emerald Estates. The trail is meant to be descended, as climbing up it is not any fun or recommended.

No Girlie Man offers up some incredible viewpoints of Green Lake and the surrounding valley along its route. The trail begins with a technical climb up the steep and rocky terrain, before dropping down some challenging topography. Make sure to stop, pause, and take in the scenery, as glancing at the lake during your ride will surely result in a mishap on a trail that requires your undivided attention. It’s game on when riding No Girlie Man. Some great sections of rock slabs, tight and technical rock chutes, and a few rough spots in the middle of the trail will challenge even the most experienced rider. Pucker up and giv’r, as you start your ride down this trail.
