Bovine is a great climb or descent and serves best as part of a larger loop in Horseshoe Canyon. Trail has numerous re-routed sections (accomplished over the years) in order to create a more sustainable trail (drainage has been an issue here). Final, top section was re-routed in 2019 by MBT. Use caution as you will likely encounter riders heading in the opposite direction of you as this trail is popular riding both directions. Lower section can get muddy in springtime.
