You can tell this is a very well built climbing trail, a lot of work must’ve gone into this. It’s technical but it’s alright because there are a couple good spots to rest.

So many awesome skinnies! Quite pedally in places but that's okay. Definitely a great tech trail, some bits are hard to clean in the wet though.

Trail Bad Blood
Super fun! Technical but it still has great flow. Love the big rock roll at the start, so glad they made such great use of that slab. So great to link EBD and Bad Blood.

Trail Blue line
If you are a new rider this trail is seems a bit more difficult than the other blues around here.

Loved the trail, but it's definitely not a blue as rated here, even the signs are black. As or more difficult than other regional blacks (7th secret, expresso, Severed, Ned's, etc), but not sure how it compares with blacks on Eagle Mt. Thanks to the trail crews that keep these trails alive!

What he said. Lots of potential, but a super suck ride back up. You can ride it now, just not a lot to it.

Agreed with some others on here. It's a technical black climb with few breaks. Maybe others are in better shape than I am, but this is a tough climb!

Bridge has been fixed. Trail open. West side entrance to the trail is now gravel to the bridge.

This trail is amazing.m! That said, for a interbeginner like myself (who comfortably rides Griffin, Floppy Bunny and Expresso on the shore), this was definitely MUCH more difficult. If you are relatively new, I would approach this more like a technical and steep black. Will practice elsewhere and hopefully will try again with some more experienced Smile .

Very boring trail. Pretty much a walking trail.

Could be a decent trail but it’s not well maintained and a lot of the ladders etc are broken or in poor condition. It also dumps you out on the TC trail when you have a killer climb back if you’re going that way.

Listed as a blue climbing trail on TF but it is signed and rides like a black. Technical climbing trail.

As the previous comment said, a great beginner/intermediate trail with wood features, climbs and descents, and slick rocks. Much more fun than being on the gravel road!

A fun trail that has lots of ups and downs. Sections of it are quite chunky and very rocky. Some pretty tight corners as well!

it has a huge jump at the end of this short trail. beware. If you choose to walk it you have to lower your bike down off of it, no easy go around.
