This is a great trail! Loved the XL rock garden, wouldn't call it a black though.

about time they made this a black diamond. the blue rating was really misleading as its much more technical than a blue.

This is my favorite trail at Wood Canyon. It is a fast, technical downhill with some alternate jumps. No big gaps or tables, just little things you can drop off. Do NOT take a beginner down this trail. Only ride this trail when you are comfortable on Rock-It, then it will be really fun!

Trail Rock-It
In my opinion this is the best trail at Wood Canyon. I think it is about a low black, and has the right combination of tech and flow. Recently (early 2022) it has been pretty eroded and gnarly than usual. It is a black diamond right now. Please DO NOT go up this trail, as many of the corners are very blind and some people go very fast down it. You may think it is okay because of the many different line choices, but some sections barely have room for a biker to pass a hiker squeezed into a bush, much less another biker pedaling the opposite direction.

On the more challenging end of blue rated trails. Manageable for most, but this is more blue/black trail.

As of June 1, 2021 this is an uphill only trail for bikes. As of this post, Trailforks has this listed as a multi-directional trail. Again, it is an uphill only trail for bikes, multi-directional trail for hikers.

Really steep for pedaling an enduro bike. Should be changed into a proper climbing trail.

the trail is already 10 feet wide in some spots, it doesn't need any more widening. Many people pedal enduro bikes up it with no issue, it is the easiest climb in Aliso.

Don’t go up, but the downhill is super fun. Some rock rolls, good berms, and a super long rock garden. After the rock garden tho there is a hard uphill. Good luck to anyone who can clear the uphill. I would call it a black and so does the trail system.
