Originally rated Difficult (Red) now rated Severe (Black) due to erosion. Not wanting to remove the natural challenge from the trail it has been re-rated rather than changed. It is likely only rated Severe due to one rock face, the trail isn't that much more significantly challenging than a Difficult trail.

The trail itself climbs to the top of the ridge through switchbacks and then follows the ridgeline over two false summits before entering a more flowy section with berms, jumps and rollers.

      The South Loop downhill was VERY wet. Lots of standing water but still plenty of grip.

       Really great trail with optional challenges if you dare to commit to them; descent is fun with technical chutes and corners but a good fitness level is needed to complete the whole thing in one take!
