Amazing single track that is a mild epic ride and has amazing scenery! Nothing is to technical and the trail i would say is intermediate, but what it lacks in adrenaline causing drops it makes up for in a breathtaking trail. From amazing overlooks to beautiful single track through pines, cow grass fields, and aspens. This trail makes you feel like your in the back country with just your riding buddies and the mountains. I suggest not trying to do this one as fast as you can but to take time and enjoy the scenery.
