"A Blaze on the Hillside" gets its name from a song title, plus it runs next to a fire pit that I have used to warm up while building the trail. It features a moderate amount of rock features in the first third of the trail, then opens up and speed increase on the latter half. There are multiple line choices all the way down. It can be accessed from "Rock & Roll/Hard Rock" trails, or by the "My Fitness Test" trail. It ends up lo down close to the main parking lot, next to the "Boot Chute" trail. Enjoy!

Access Info

If you climb "Hard Rock" then you'll see the sign for "A Blaze on the Hillside". If you are next to the "Stubby" or Shep's" trails, it can be be found at the top of the hillside above those two. There is a short climb to the trail head.

 Definitely a black trail, not blue. Multiple steep rock lines at the top, a few (mostly low consequence) gaps in the middle, one steep silty slalom line near the bottom. Beware of the blind rock jump to gap about half-way down. Look before you launch.
