It sounds like GotchaJimmy and Sirhams are confusing this section of Coal Camp with the upper trail, which is exposed and fast. I would add rocky and a real grunt to access. This trail is pure fun. Last time we were there, we cycled the loop of Coal Camp (up) to Coal Camp (down) 4 times.

Fun little climbing trail that connects the upper parking lot to either Coal Camp Down or the connector that takes you to the Coal Camp Upper Loop. Smooth surface that snakes and winds through the grass and brush.

Directional Loop. The climb is in the trees but can be steep at some points. The descent is in the oak brush along a steep hillside that has a couple of chunky spots and optional jibs. It can be easily rolled down by an intermediate rider if they take their time.

This is a two-way trail to connect the Coal Camp Upper Loop with the lower trails. It's smooth and in the trees, which is nice compared to the rest of the South Canyon trails. It's a pretty consistent grade going up with only a couple of steep spots.

Going down its fast and flowy. There are a couple of blind corners so be aware. The trail surface is smooth but there are some off-camber spots that when combined with fallen pine needles may catch a descender off guard and slide them off trail.

This section of trail (specifically Coal Camp Down) is neither steep or exposed. It's a twisty flow trail with nice berms through the brush. You can hold your speed well thanks to the smooth surface and berms. It has a couple of pump rollers than can be doubled too. It spits you out into a parking lot and can be easily lapped using the up-trail.

I'd take my 6-year old son down this without hesitation.

Easy to shuttle and a great time full of amazing burms, doubles, and drops.
