First off this trail is an absolute blast! However I would consider this a soft double black trail. The grade goes up to 70% in spots and gets quite rooty. There are also optional jumps and drops on the way down. Quite difficult compared to other blacks in the area.

Great little connector trail that cuts through some atypical dense conifers, shoots through twisty aspens and then benches way above Daly canyon with some moderate exposure (don’t fall off the cliff...). Ride *from* King Road/4:20 for better flow.

Flows much better the *other* way than the other comment (from the bottom of upper Johns). Connect to Gravedigger and over to Daly canyon for a great old school experience.

Steep, dusty chute onto King road at the end that can result in a quick face plant for the distracted... (you’re a boss if you climb that chute going the other way)

I'm surprised this trail isn't rated over 4.0! Such a good trail with lots of good root drops and technical riding. It definitely not anything under black. It takes quite a bit of bike knowledge and skill to make all the drops and turns cleanly all the way down.

Short but not just left to rot as most downhill trails in PCMR have been. The catch berms really make this trail great.

Pretty funny that the first commented called this trail “meh”. Such a fun, raw n rowdy trail with a few good drops. Wish it was longer!

Overgrown and tight. Not worth the time.

I liked your comment, I made it the official description. I remember those tight switchbacks, but I haven't ridden it for a few years. I guess it hasn't changed much.

Much like its intoxicating counterpart, this trail is mostly smooth sailing, but will occasionally throw you for an uncomfortable loop (or switchback, as it were) I rode this trail up from Kings Road, and enjoyed it, but had to walk several of the very tight, very steep, switchbacks.

It was originally marked as double black, some people complained that it was not a double black. I prefer to err on the safe side. This trail has also changed through the years, originally it was not very blown out or ridden much at all, I think it has gotten a bit more rutted with deeper brake bumps.

This trail should be rated double black. Compared to other black trails in the area it's much steeper, with lots of roots, drops, and moondust

Short but fun. Steep with several small drops and some large gap jumps when you hit the creek/drainage. Loose, dusty soil, but steep enough that you can blast through it.

Meh. Very rooty and twisty. And loads of dust.
