Ridden from east to west, an excellent climb on a sustainable grade with fantastic views. Part of the larger Blackhawk loop; not really a stand-alone trail.

      Awesome views! If you ride it I would suggest some arm and leg protection as it is a bit overgrown.

       Trail is pretty fun when it's been ridden/groomed, no downed trees or mud. The views alone are worth it.

       This is a beautiful ride. I recommend starting here west and heading east, and carrying on all the way to the end Bernie creek if you want more down hill. That will give you a good day of near ten miles of mostly DH.
