Extremely technical remote trail in the heart of the San Rafael Swell. Not a ride to be underestimated. Either direction, there are multiple sections that cannot be ridden and several sandy washes. There is a lot of very intense techy riding, some really fun parts, and incredible views and landscape. This is primarily a dirt bike trail, so know what your're getting into when you go to ride 5MOH.

      Soooo fun for people who like really hard slow tech up and down riding. Really hard moves to session on with some sand wash walking in between....
