      Used to love riding up/down the west side, but I think it has been altered significantly by the monsoon this year, way less fun with all the loose...

       About the most vertical you can get in Brown's Ranch, but I wouldn't call it a black diamond.

       Hands down one of the best trials in the Valley. Great stuff from tricky tech to fast flowy sections. The climb was tolerable and the surrounding were beautiful, definitely coming back????

       Probably a blue with some black features. The climb is chunky & steep in some sections but entirely rideable. Beautiful views with a fast & super fun rocky descent.

       Great conditions. Rocky sections challenges your cardio. Hard to believe this is only 300 feet

       If you can clean Sidewinder and/or Dixie at Sonoran Preserve, this will be a fun challenge compared to the rest of Brown's.
