Called "Black Powder" for a reason. In dry conditions, there is deep moon dust on this trail.

Rated as a Blue difficulty, but be aware it is "Dark Blue".

Access Info

Great connector if you want to hit Cosens Bay for a swim after riding Twisted Sister and Crash of '08.

Get your fat tire bikes out for the fields of deep brown powder. A few sections of the trail have been destroyed by the heat and heavy traffic.
