City continues to mangle this trail and make it more dangerous every couple months, be careful with the flat turns that invite speed up top. There's boulders placed precariously in terrible spots that are bound to injure/maim someone.

Trail Lower Codell
Very fast trail with a lot of rollers and little jumps, mostly just a straight line to the parking lot

Trail difficulty varies widely with trail conditions. Specifically with regard to rocks becoming loose and no longer embedded in the trail surface.

Hard but not even close to a double black. Best chunky downhill in the city, tons of hikers but they are all gone by evening.

More of a single than a double black. Loose and steep, but manageable as long as you know how to take corners. Beware— this trail has a lot of hiker traffic.
