       An awesome trail you gotta work for. Tough, steep climbing but ripping downhill to finish it out.

       If starting west to East be prepared for a hike a bike for a couple miles. After that rolling awesome downhill descents through aspen trees. Another small hike a bike and then the best descent in telluride. Awesome trail.

       Rode east to west. Lung buster out the lot. With mellow meandering disappointing trail at the end. I would highly suggest you ride this west to east. Easier climb with better decent.
