Variation of challenging rock-face, some easy single track, a few steep drop-roll downs, steep climbs, and machine built switchback climb next to a bermed descent.

 If you're a fan of old school techy grindy trails, look no further. You'll definitely get your granny gear on here crawling through the roots and baby heads. Comparing these trails to BC is quite a stretch, but definitely a fun area to ride after doing Blue Highway.

 So many baby heads that by the time we got to the top on the world. I went through 2 rear tubes.

 Sorry to hear you’ve had this double flat experience, that’s definitely a downer.

I can’t rememeber the last time I had a flat riding Five of Diamonds, and I ride it nearly every weekend.

I have 2.35 tires running tubeless, so this helps a lot.

There might be a solution for you in tire pressure, tire size, and going tubeless is worth considering.

We’ve made an effort to remove most of the easy to remove pointy rocks, but it is a naturally rugged area.

You can private msg me if you like. I’d like to learn what set up you’re running.
