This trail is a technical trail that has rocks to jump over and navigate through and has several switchbacks to power up. It would be easy to snake bite a tire if you do not have your timing right. A very rewarding trail to clean.

 This is one of the most rocky technical trails in the Bloody Shins Trail System. I don’t know if it’s a true black, I think it’s more of a blue. There are a couple of rocks that you can ride like a drop, but all of those have ride around (I didn’t notice the rock obstacles the first couple of times I rode the trail, because you have to intentionally ride over them). If you can lift your front tire 2-4 inches at will, you should enjoy this trail.
