Fun trail but steep sections sketchy when wet. Cap needs more blues not blacks.

If your interested in green and blues I recommend checking out the other trail heads in capitol forest. About 45% of capitol forest proper are green and blue rated trails.

So fun! Really accessible to riders of all ability but offers challenging options for those that want them. Beautiful views, great berms, fun table tops.

More than just a warm-up - this trail could be ridden all day by itself and you wouldn't even be mad about it. Bring your friends and stay a while because life is good when you're Livin' The Dream.

Rode this for the first time over the weekend and had a blast. Be careful with the drop on that last section after the road, lol. Little sneaky if you're coming in hot. Can't wait to hit this one again!

First time here. My wife rode it really well with her hard tail. She only had to walk a couple features. Overall super fun trail We climbed the OHV trail which was a little tiring but manageable. It was the heat that had us poring sweat.
