This is a route showcasing all of the technical trails in the Gold Canyon trail system with the exception of portions of the Lost Goldmine trail. Take a look at the flow of the route, there are some stacked loops & overlapping segments. For the most part, it's a giant CW directional loop.

      Second run down the trail after discovering the line on Trailforks and seeing how fun and sketchy it is in a few spots. Definitely some places...
