This is a fun route to get back to Valley Vista after climbing Sneaky or Thunderdome. It's pretty flowy at the top and there are even a few jumps.

It's just 2 small/medium jumps but they're a nice alternative path to the normal blue trail.

Bring two mules. One to carry you, and one for your bike.

Nothing “luge” about this trail. It’s a fine connector, just a good way to get to Ruin.

This should not be labeled black, there isn't much to it.

I changed it to blue. The trail was imported from another database which had the trail added back in 2010 before the bridge. The exposure was really bad, and it was really difficult before the construction where it turns off to the old river bridge. But yah, I didn't realize this was still a black. I don't want to send families with little kids with that exposure, so I'll keep it blue.

Not sure why anyone would rate this a black trail. It's easy to ride in either direction with no technical features whatsoever. There is a little bit of exposure, but nothing scary. This should be rated green or at most a mild blue.

cardio aspect is right. I ended up crossing a stream that I don't think was part of the mapped trail. Nice little adventure there.

Toward the end, I ended up off the marked path in a gulch/gully that opened up to a nice side trail that was less used but easy to follow. Fun little detour.

Good trail for beginners looking for a quick/fun run.
