This trail was fun in spots and the scenery is very good but it definitely not all down and not all flow. There are some flowy sections that navigate you through some big boulders, and some sections where the slick rock has some hard edges and can be a rough ride on a hard tail. Fun cross country type trail to train and enjoy the unique landscape.

       A Great trail. The scenery is just amazing. Not the toughest trail but so nice to be far out there in peace. The DH is great and easy flowing. Take the time and go seek out the Dino prints (look where the rock cairns to spot the prints).

       This trailer is just OK. When you get to the top of mega and then want to come down if you think that it will be all downhill but it is not. So that is a little disappointing. And then when you are going downhill it is technical so you can’t really get up any speed anywhere. I would probably pass on riding again

       This trail was fun in spots and the scenery is very good but it definitely not all down and not all flow. It’s a fairly bone jarring 3 miles or so and that was with my bike totally cushed out.
