I just want to reiterarte what others are saying... The pathfinding is awful, tons of hike-a-bike, various lines if you keep your eyes open and are creative, incredibly technical up and down. Some of the sections are easily double black while insanely technical and that's coming from an AZ techy rider. I took a beginner and she had a blast overcoming some of the more mellow slickrock and chunky descents. I had an awful time trying to make sure we were on trail, fail most of the climbs, with mediocre descending. One or two somewhat fun drops with some techy chunk didn't keep it interesting enough. I would only come back if I had a guide to show me the proper lines.

The whole area needs cleaned up. Designate one trail and close and rehab the rest. Also there are trails that almost if not run over the namesake (and threatened) bear claw poppy.

Great trail. Largely flow with some tech thrown in here & there with one or two features I’d rate as black. Adding in Sidewinder as a spur gives you a few more miles, and extra climb, and some great views.

Another unpopular opinion here, this trail is not good. It's kind of a jump line trail, but its just a connection of lines over natural terrain... there's no flow. There's not really jumps, just some natural hips and berms, no landings. Landscape covered in children, and bewildered parents on ebikes. Best avoided, along with the rest of the Green Valley trails.

As mentioned previously, midpoint of trail is where all the tech is. Rode in both directions, preferred ccw. CW is an easy climb leading to tech in the middle with lots of flat and pedaling afterwards. CCW is a more fun and engaging uphill with a lackluster descent. Paired CCW loop with sidewinder, Suicidal tendencies, and precipice for the best of all worlds.

Best ridden as a lollipop clockwise, starting on the trail paralleling Precipice and finishing on Precipice. Quite a bit more technical on the descent than I expected from the other comments. Kind of like Zen Lite.

There are some incredible rock features on this and the scenery is gorgeous. I never really felt like I was going down though. There are so many super steep techy climbs all over this trail, and I have never ridden a trail anywhere where I have had to dismount so many times. There was a fairly cavernous discrepancy between how fun the individual sections on the trail are and the amount of fun I had riding it. It's awesome when you are going down but you frequently are not. Barrel is substantially more fun.

Not sure if anyone will scroll down to my comment but I’ll make one anyhow. This trail makes no sense clockwise and I think the concept of loosing the trail is under reported.
That said it is a great up and down trail with some technical short climbs and some harrowing chutes just when you think it’s smoothing out. I rode it a couple times and got lost on the bottom half both times having to keep checking the map which was annoying. Hope you enjoy/enjoyed the trail

Wow. Shocked at the negative comments. This is a suuuuuper fun downhill with several steep drops and jumps. Fun for all levels. You will see kids at the bottom near the trailhead, but I did not see any kids bombing down this trail. Great flow. Had an absolute blast! A nice change from the chunky riding in Sedona and Hurricane.

I rode this blind and it was amazing! Normally when I’m riding something for the first time, I take it slow but this trail is very friendly. I found this trail easy trust that there wasn’t anything crazy ahead of me. The trail has many tech climbs and punchy sections. Nice chunky descent. And really cool rock features that I almost got lost on. But a quick glance on the map and I was back on track. Give it a shot! You won’t regret it!

This is a great trail to improve your tech climbs as there is very little exposure if you mess up. Also a great trail of you are transitioning from Blue trails to blacks. Have fun!!

Using the "Route Finder" tool most people lose the trail at 3.5 miles when the trail goes backwards. (Others commonly get lost between miles 3.1 and 3.5) I almost got lost at mile 3.5 today, despite the rocks stacked in a curved wall, I added a few more to help. Route Finder also shows some fun alternate lines. Zen is a blast, with hundreds of very large rock obstacles in the trail.

There are a lot of negative comments on this trail and I'm surprised, this trail is an absolute blast to go to with any level of experience. There are a ton of insane drops and many little features that have been built into the trail to make it a ton of fun to ride. There are not many times in the trail where there is not some sort of feature to have fun with. In my top 3 trails in the Southern Utah area.

Did not induce Zen. Extremely frustrating ride due to the lack of clear markers. There are apparently tons of alternate lines, as in whole 100 ft+ sections that you don’t know if they are the main trail or will even lead back to the main trail. Cairns (small rock stacks) are used, but they are too small and do not stand out from random other rocks, or a single one is placed right in the middle of a trail split, giving no indication which way to go. Paint on the ground like in most other slickrock riding areas is desperately needed. Absolutely zero signage around the parking area or on the trail, aside from private property signs that scared me into parking back on the pavement. The trail was alright, but never anything that made it particularly fun or memorable. Only a few sustained descents for what felt like quite a bit of climbing.

I tried to find the trail with much anticipation of a great ride unfortunately along with 6 other out of town riders we could not put the trail together. We found bits and pieces of it but it never became the trail we had anticipated. I went to a bike shop to get some direction and he basically told me ride it with a local it changes all the time. Wow ok so this iconic Utah trail is for locals ok no big deal there’s lots of other well marked trails but got to admit it was disappointing.

Whole areas destroyed by people riding whereever the hell they feel like. Land to the SW is even worse with trash, bottles, pallets and shotgun shells everywhere. Kinda have a shitty feeling riding here. Good free camping though, I guess.

Trail Barrel Roll
Mostly cruiser singletrack, with only two or three hard technical sections that make it a "black diamond" trail. Great views and a fun ride!

Sorry, but this is definitely not a double black. More like a blue.
