The name says it all. This trail can be ridden in either direction. Either way is a steep ascent with tight switchbacks full of loose rock. Most of the trail extends just beyond the Hartland Bike Park boundary which was defined well after the trail had already been made.
If you are seriously injured on trails in the Bike Park, please inform the Trails Director at: trails@simbs.com.
