Delightfully unaccommodating. Perfect track to burn off groms and wakeboarding coworkers.

I'd rate this as blue. Easy smooth surface, but it's got some steep grades that definitely aren't suitable for beginners

Definitely a blue trail. A bit of rock, but nothing that warrants a black rating, easily navigable for an intermediate rider.

Trail Earring
The top of the trail from Race Classic to Hillbilly is not a blue trail. There are some very technical and difficult descents, including some near vertical drops. This is mixed with some flat pedal sections over loose rock that are highly unpleasant.

Below the Hillbilly junction, the trail becomes fast and flowy and is a great intermediate ride.

Upper Earring is more Black than Blue. Not for Novices, unless they like walking. True Blue almost Green from Middle Bench down.

Lots of trees down right now. Prepare to climb over a tree every few corners.

I should add, maybe parts of it are green and the elevation maybe doesn’t warrant it being a blue, but the rocky sections do... if a novice rider has to walk, its not green in my opinion.

This shouldn’t be marked as a trail currently. It’s nothing more than a riverbed. Completely washed out.

Great piece of trail. Has flow if you're fast, and oh no, maybe you have to put a pedal stroke or two in. Highly recommended.

The top section of this trail was really nice before the “hillbilly-pink highway connector”, the bushes were beaten back nicely and had some decent flow, but below that connection the bushes are quite overgrown and the trail is rather rocky.

Back in the day, when we had races at Crawford, we started by the substation and then climbed a steep trail that ran alongside a barbed wire fence. Anyone know what that trail is known as today (I'm thinking Crawford Canyon DH).
