Not for the faint of heart. Well fun and challenging though. Punchy and rocky tech

Definitely start this trail counter clockwise
Or start clockwise if you like to torture yourself

This is a great trail. Tried it today for the first time. And then I realized I dropped my Garmin off my bars when I took a small fall so had to ride it again to find it. Luckily I did and the second lap was so good! a couple of steep tech climbs that seem almost impossible for me, but lots of great stuff on this trail!

Actually fun descent after brutally technical (and not super fun) stinger upper! Some technical bits, but made up for the misery. Technical green level.

Super super super technical! Not fun unless you’re an advanced xc rider. Definitely NOT a blue, more like a technical black. super rocky, lots of climbing, rock drop options, tight trails, no berms, not a lot of nice downhill sections.

I'm a little surprised that this is shown as a blue, or intermediate, Trail. Maybe because there is not a huge elevation change? But it is very technical and challenging. Lots of fun, with plenty of optional tricky things along the way.

It is currently shown the start and finish reversed from the preferred Direction. You really want to ride this from south to North! ( or counterclockwise if that helps)

Fun technical trail, lots of cool rock features to play on. Mostly climbing in very beginning, then fun up and down technical riding after that.
