Starts at the top parking lot in North Cheyenne Canon Park and ends at the Red Rack parking lot next to Rudy's. You will spend most of your time climbing on this route to reach that SWEET SWEET downhill. Be careful on the 666 Connector and Bear Creek section, you can pick up a ton of speed fairly quick hit lots of loose gravel in the turns and straight away.

The reason I marked the route a Black Diamond is because of Section 16. A guy I met on the trail described it best "Section 16 is like a pick your own adventure". Big chunky gnar gnar!!!

      Most of the good sections of this trail were destroyed by the forest service and Trout Unlimited because they hate mountain bikers.
