Chimney gulch is pretty sweet. It's usually too busy to ride down unless you go in the middle of the week. It's also pretty loose and sandy which makes for an interesting descent as well as pretty difficult climbs. I just ride up this trail as a connector to apex. It's pretty fun, there are a few techy sections and some tight switch backs. Overall decent trail but often too busy.
