Rocks, rocks, some more rocks, and technical everywhere. This trail doesn't flow any direction, and is technical in both directions. The north end has some good technical descending, but the entire trail is a rough go, meant to test your full body and rock climbing skills

 Brilliant trail system. Over 20 miles of intermediate to expert trails. Work your way around the mountain and up to little Red Rocks. Smooth, flowy with jumps and berms. Tech sections but all rideable in both directions. Have you ridden Cleod 9, Black Friday, No-dab, Rise over run, Big Horn Spur, Bandana, and the original Toque? If not, get out and jam it!

 Recommend riding the Burbs clockwise or counter? Thanks

 Counter if you want more DH and clockwise if you want more pedaling.
