Libtards turned it into a sidewalk. No more rocks, nothing. You can drive a minivan on this trail now.

Rideable both ways, fun rock drops mixed with flow to make for a solid blue trail.

It's recently been very sanitized. Used to have a bunch of fun rocks to make things interesting, but the powers that be are doing their very best to turn it into sidewalk.

Rode up from the 46th lot. Definitely more fun going down but has some challenging, technical climbing.

Overall it's a blue diamond but there are a few stretches that are black diamond. Can't describe where they are at but they are tricky.

This trail is one of the best blue trails on the mountain. Some spots of tech but mostly flowy sustained downhill. Best ridden west to east, but honestly wouldn’t be that bad of a climb if ridden east to west.

Rideable in both directions. The perfect blue in my opinion.

Very lose and steep. Multiple rock drops and rock rolls over sharp jagged rock Its fun every once and a while. This is rideable but it’s more of a hiking trail I’ve never seen any other riders on it. Mormon to Natty, bev, and javalina are more fun, and longer rides to do in area imo.

Great trail. Just enough tech to make it fun and enough flow to really get some speed. The perfect warmup and/or cool down for National.

If you dont have years behind the bars then this is an absolute trechorous ride. Please avoid, also you will probably make quite a few enemies with hikers that run this daily. Stay on Javalina or Bev Canyon

This is a real nice climb from the parking lot. MUCH more fun to go downhill though

A little bit of hike a bike. As long as you start from the west side of ridge line you have a pretty nice down hill decent. Not for beginner riders just because of the steep downhill with some rock faces towards the bottom.

O definitely recommend this trail for a downhill ride. It gives a lot of fun! Smile

We set out on the climb in the heat of the desert sun which added to the brutality of the climb. The descent was oh-so-sweet, though! At the time of writing this, I'm still working on my fitness level and tech skills and although I did a fair amount of hike-a-bike up the last 1/3 of the trail, I was able to clean almost the entire trail down.

To give you an indication of my level, I hiked most of Mormon and National just to see what it was like and if I could level up – but those trails are still beyond me. Maybe in a few months!

This is not a green trail especially the south face of the mountain connection to desert classics is on par with National trail.

Went 1.5k up from the west. Hiker opined that there were probably better trails for mountain bikes, rough and steep on the east side. I took his advice and went back down and rode up Mormon.

Rocky with 1-1.5 ft steps at places. Tough climb, but I'm new to this. Turned around 1/3 up Mormon - out of gas. Bumpy ride down on my hardtail.
