Best done as an out and back from either north or south this is a wild and fantastic route with both ways being just as fun. This is a hugely sensitive trail, stick to the path and avoid if it's wet. Best done in bone dry weather or maybe when the ground is iced frozen. There's no phone signal up there and is exposed with no trees or shelter so avoid in bad weather.

       Huge amount of work and love went into this trail but I’m just not sure who the target demographic is? All the rocks make falling too high consequence for beginners but there is nothing to challenge and engage experienced riders.
