A downhill trail that's very hard for the "blue" difficulty given, it has plenty of drops, rock gardens, jumps, and other technical features. I would only recommend riding this with a hardtail if your bike handling skills are excellent, or it has 3 inch tires.

Originally an unauthorized trail created by equestrians and later enhanced by mountain bikers, this trail was brought into the system in 2017 after modifications that minimized resource damage.
