Some pretty loose tight switchbacks, but nothing too technical

This should be a one way downhill. Climb up Sundance road, then rip down True Grit. Rock features are fun, this trail is built for speed.

Ascend this trail and descend Mother Lode. Loose and rocky climb but worth it.

Technical and steep (but short) climb up to the peak. Worth the views when you get to the top!
