One of the most unique trails I have ridden. Not tech at all but way more fun than expected.

Rode east to west on July 4th. Not much traffic. Most of it was hikers going the same direction.

The climb was manageable. No pushing necessary. Easier than climbing up to Georgia Pass from Kenosha and easier than a lot of Front Range climbs.

The descent is an absolute ripper. Wide open sight lines. No technical features whatsoever though I did create a few root gaps for myself. The switchbacks don’t come out of nowhere…stop staring at your DHF knobs ya’all.

Wow, what a trail. Amazing berms on this new trail. It needs some hand work on the drainage to encourage the water to drain. I’m in town until Sunday 7/18. Jakearley@gmail.com

Super fun and fast climb on top of a mound created from excavating the adjacent ditch. The miles fly by.

climb is sustained and steep, but not rampy nor loose, and therefore just a grind rather than a gruel. The descent is bonkers fun, although I did the last miles in the dark.

Great views, easy traversing trail perched on a steep ridge side with a sense of exposure.

I would agree that the climb is a nasty and never ending one. Can be done if your in great shape and can handle the altitude. The ride down makes it worth it though.

This was a fun downhill. It could be climbed but has a few steep rocky sections and loose sections that would zap energy. I climbed up Soda + Hippo, east across the Colorado Trail and down this. Highly recommended loop! Either loop direction would work and climb well.

Several cautions to note about this trail:
1. The climb to the top is grueling. This is NOT a blue for anyone coming from lower altitudes.
2. The descent is a lot of fun! However, there are some very tight switchbacks that you get NO WARNING they are coming and NO BERM help!

I am 50 years old from Oklahoma. I ride the Womble (IMBA Epic) a lot in Arkansas. If that is what you are looking for skip this section and ride the next two sections!

Definitely one of the most popular trails in Summit. Lots of variation on ways to ride this, although most will do it East to West. Appropriate for a variety of skill levels.
