      Very fun area for all levels. Fun features (drops and jumps) at the top that, when taken with speed, are very cool. There are also many optional...

       Whole areas destroyed by people riding whereever the hell they feel like. Land to the SW is even worse with trash, bottles, pallets and shotgun shells everywhere. Kinda have a shitty feeling riding here. Good free camping though, I guess.

       This would have been great if ass hole people would preserve the trails. As it is there’s 10 different options every 20 feet or so. Half of them are jokes and ruin the flow. Thanks for ruining the trails

       Much easier trail than anticipated. There are a few intermediate trails but most are easy. Great for riders of varying levels.

       Pretty horrible trail. People riding wherever they want ruin the trail. Big gap on one which is blind and unclearable. But the drops are fun, if you like ‘em big and loose

       There are a lot of negative comments on this trail and I'm surprised, this trail is an absolute blast to go to with any level of experience. There are a ton of insane drops and many little features that have been built into the trail to make it a ton of fun to ride. There are not many times in the trail where there is not some sort of feature to have fun with. In my top 3 trails in the Southern Utah area.

       Came across the option on a short gravel bike loop. Good fun for drop bar bike. Lots of options. Well maintained and lots of markers keeping me on the easy route and away from big drops. Would be fun to actually learn the trail.

       Just because it’s downhill only does not mean it’s gonna be a fun one. Good for beginners.

       Fun trail as an end to Stucki loop. Great for kids. Lots of fun, nothing overly technical.

       Wow. Shocked at the negative comments. This is a suuuuuper fun downhill with several steep drops and jumps. Fun for all levels. You will see kids at the bottom near the trailhead, but I did not see any kids bombing down this trail. Great flow. Had an absolute blast! A nice change from the chunky riding in Sedona and Hurricane.

       Has to be the most braided train I have ever ridden. Fun, but i can't imagine how long the area will last before any vegetation is left.
