Very nicely built trail, with consistent grade and great views. Some small rock features and discrete jumps exist, but this trail has been designed to be appealing for all ability levels -so don't expect any gnar. Great climb in either direction, though the northern section to Ash Canyon is usually the preferred downhill direction for most folks.

Note that this is a non-motorized trail. E-Bikes ARE NOT ALLOWED.

      North facing slopes are wet and muddy with minor rutting. Recommend letting it dry out more or riding when frozen.
