Make sure your brakes are in good working order and prepare to hold on for dear life This trail is by far the steepest and most demanding of any trail around Boulder. The trail descends what used to be a moto trail although it's not too deep or dug out and works great for mountain biking. Expect steep, tight switchbacks, fast wide open sections, and a few rock rolls. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face and scare you a bit at the same time.
