This trail was built as an uphill (grind) hike to fly for access to the para-glide launch. Not intended for downhill bike traffic as it is steep terrain, very dry and loose, exposed side hill, no berms, and considerable sharp talus rock.
Not very enjoyable for a hike either as it has been wrecked by riders.

Disclaimer

This trail was originally intended as a hiking trail. It is not very enjoyable on a bike.

       Rode this trail the past weekend (June 24th). Not any memorable feature other than skinny singletrack with exposure on majority of the trail. Currently running terrible, track is very raw and loose. The steepness/looseness ratio is so bad that you'll just ride your brakes the whole way down and still pray you'll make the super loose corners. Lots of loose Talus rock usually at bottom of longer sections to keep things interesting. Also 2 large trees down in steep sections so it was difficult to climb over with a bike.
      Hopefully this review saves you the pain and torture.

       Please don't ride this trail. It is an uphill hiking trail. Every time a group of riders goes down it, the hike up gets more and more difficult.

       I built trail to both hike and ride. The reason the trail is getting cluttered with rock has little/nothing to do with riders (correct riding usually improves a trail over time) and much to do with the constant talus fall. Contribnute by picking rocks as you climb, that's what it takes. Judd used to hike with a hockey stick and his paraglider and practice his wrist shots on the rocks.

       Hi, I built this trail. Yes it was built to hike to launch, but it was also built to ride. It is a great ride if you like old school. If you don't like like it, sorry, maybe try again with better attitude or better skills. Cheers, Nigel
