       A steep, technical grind up to a summit with neat views of Golden and Boulder. This trail is highly technical, and very steep in places. I would not recommend descending it, as there are no berms or other features except baby head rocks and boulders. All you will be doing is braking. Still, this trail is a great connector to Mustang Trail and Maverick Trail from the lower parking lot. You are good technical climber if you can clean it, and a XC God if you can do it without stopping for water.

       Very steep bordering on too hard to ride, esp nonstop. 1300 feet in 3 miles.

       I don't think it's all that technical for the most part, except a few short sections. Mostly just steep, loose, and emotionally draining, though entirely rideable. Worth it to access better trails higher up, and the views are nice. Can be super busy with hikers and families esp down low.
