Long Sleeves or get the Meatdraw. Tie it in with Upper Meatdraw and Lower Lower Meatdraw (unnamed but Gnarly) and get the feeling back in your arms in a week or 2.

Kudos to the builders, this is an awesome example of "natural flow" and use of grade. So much bang for buck and arguably fun for any skill level. Wish there were more like it!

I'd rate this a blue, not black. But fun nonetheless.

Fast and flow. Black diamond rating is a stretch though.

Slower speed chunky riding. Fun in spots. Couple challenging moves for sure.

Trail is in great shape right now, perfect dirt. Rode down the trail, there are a few fun kickers to hit. Seems like a decent climbing trail as well. There is a sign at the bottom to warn climbers to watch for oncoming riders, so I'd say its a 2 direction trail. The other climbing option, E&M, is also nice but requires much more fire road climbing as well. Both are good options IMO.

Looks like a lot of moto guys have been riding this recently given the tire tracks in there. Getting really chewed up given how pristine it was pre-snow.

Please don't climb up this trail. There is an climbing trail or use the road; climbing this trail is dangerous. This trails is downhill and riders come down fast. It is a matter of time that accident will happen with riders going up this trail.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy goodness with a pile of long off camber slabs that'll test your nerves or bone strength if it's wet. Good good fun.
