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

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

       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!

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

       Honestly, I can't imagine it being any better in any direction. Narrow trails with hard rock on one side and a dropoff on the other with more rock thrown in randomly in the middle. I'm not complaining, it's the hardest trail system in Vegas, and once you forget how hard it is, you wanna go back!
