       There's no trail description so I'll add a little more. Coal Chures is literal! I had no idea until I found myself blastings down chutes of coal. It's a good trail if your starting to get used to steeps. Just point the bike down and hold on! The climb out from the bottom isn't too hard either. It's worth ditching some elevation to ride this!
