Riding great right now. Get out there before it snows again. There are a couple of snowy spots about half way down up on the berms, but it’s hardly any - you can ride on it just fine.

The bob is a gravelly mess right now. You'd want to hit this at speed but with so many loose rocks, large ruts, gravelly sections it's hard to hit with the confidence of years past.

Anyone want to get together to do some maintenance? Vegetation needs to be trimmed back on almost the entire thing, large very loose rocks need to be tossed, jumps broken and rutted out.
Very fun trail back in the day, it’s been over 10 years since I have ridden it, and Saturday I crashed 7 times going down it largely due to the above mentioned things.

I think this a great way to enter the roller coaster. The first drop is insane. Stay off the brakes so you make it up the other side or it becomes rather interesting. The rest of the roller coaster is rather tame after this. If you make it to the utility road might as well go to the top for the view, not that difficult from the utility road.

Can be a fun trail to descend on, just make sure that you like loose and steep. It can be pretty tough on some places but is really fun to ride down.

This trail used to be rideable. Sadly, it’s now very loose and some ground has washed away right before the water bars, making most of them impossible to get up. This trail needs a little bit of love to get back to being better.

This is a fun trail but it is not a great trail to get to rollercoaster! There is a STEEP hill that you need to walk up. (I could barely do it) so only ride this trail up and back down. Not up and over to rollercoaster.

Short connection from BST to Dry Creek entrance. A short section of exposure and the narrowness of this trail makes it less ideal for beginners, but an easy enough hike a bike down if you decide it's too sketch.

Be careful out there, a rider informed me before o dropped in that there was a bunch of wasps around the creek bed. And he wasn’t wrong, there’s a huge swarm that you either need to bomb through or wear long sleeves for. Other than that what a great run.

You mean that little round water tank in the trees?

Hit the water tower drop, you won't.

Most fun trail in the area. Fast half pipe like in the summer, still a blast with 5" of fresh snow (bring a fat bike - like my $360 Mongoose Juneau, cheap but effective).

Great learners trail but short. It’s got technical sections you can get better on but it’s not the whole trail, so you get a break in between.

Nearly impossible unless you have amazing balance, and thighs of steel. The climbs are like 5% over loose rock. And the downhill isn’t great to justify it. Definitely harder than moderate at the very least.

The trail is pretty fun. Nothing too crazy except one area with tons of large rocks. Could see how that area would cause some issues. Just noting, it seems most people go up this. It is much more fun going down. So, if going down - be ready to have to slow down in some of the blind corners/turns.

As has been said it's a miserable uphill, but worth the descent! Earns the black diamond rating... I would suggest coming down this trail rather than the Red Butte DH. Similar trail, but longer and easier to really enjoy than the Red Butte DH.

I agree, this trail is totally no fun to climb, but the Red Butte DH through all the red rock and water bars is so much fun

It's much more fun down than up, but still not good.

Maybe the worst trail I've ever ridden. A lot of these hiking trails are being ridden and I don't mind that. This one is not worth your time unless you've ridden every trail in a 45 minute radius and are sick of them all.

No fun, to be honest. Lots of steps in the beginning, lots of big loose rocks. Narrow, rocky blind turns. Downhill is steep

This trail is amazing and easy to access. I have yet to do a car jump, but I am anticipating the season to come.
