Rode up from the 46th lot. Definitely more fun going down but has some challenging, technical climbing.

Overall it's a blue diamond but there are a few stretches that are black diamond. Can't describe where they are at but they are tricky.

This trail is one of the best blue trails on the mountain. Some spots of tech but mostly flowy sustained downhill. Best ridden west to east, but honestly wouldn’t be that bad of a climb if ridden east to west.

Do not under any circumstances take a bike down here, its a mile of riding through a sandbox

Rideable in both directions. The perfect blue in my opinion.

Great trail. Just enough tech to make it fun and enough flow to really get some speed. The perfect warmup and/or cool down for National.

This is a real nice climb from the parking lot. MUCH more fun to go downhill though

We set out on the climb in the heat of the desert sun which added to the brutality of the climb. The descent was oh-so-sweet, though! At the time of writing this, I'm still working on my fitness level and tech skills and although I did a fair amount of hike-a-bike up the last 1/3 of the trail, I was able to clean almost the entire trail down.

To give you an indication of my level, I hiked most of Mormon and National just to see what it was like and if I could level up – but those trails are still beyond me. Maybe in a few months!

This is not a green trail especially the south face of the mountain connection to desert classics is on par with National trail.

Rocky with 1-1.5 ft steps at places. Tough climb, but I'm new to this. Turned around 1/3 up Mormon - out of gas. Bumpy ride down on my hardtail.
