       I rode from top to bottom (backwards from the red/green shapes).
      Looked like an atv trail at top where neither line was good but it got better. Seems to get moto use so not as nice of a trail as the rest of Prescott. Great dh race type trail. Good way to connect to other trails. I turned right at intersection in middle.

       This is labeled as a blue. But don’t let that fool you. It’s a black trail. It’s fast and loose with some really fast tech sections with a couple of small drops and gnar rock gardens. Watch your ankles as this one will spit rocks at you.
