This trail was built with a purpose, to be ridden in both directions. Therefore, please ride the downhill with caution and keep your eyes on the trail ahead of you. There are some hidden corners that could be disastrous should you be riding too fast and out of control.

The builder(s) must have spend hundreds if not thousands of hours building this amazing single track trail that naturally connects the two riding areas of Cowboy Trails and Blue Diamond Trails together with the extension of Goat Roper. Nice work

As the entrance signs at the summit shows: Ride it...Don't slide it...

       Trail built for both directions, but it is a sweet single track and very narrow. The flow is definitely downhill Smile . a few short and steep climbs and a bit of sand on the way up will challenge intermediate riders.

       I'm low intermediate and due to the tech factor I was off my bike a lot climbing this trail. Super nice area. I'd say this trail is blue plus and most of the blue trails in blue diamond area are blue minus.

       The south entrance to Flow Job is now (4/30/2019) barbwired shut with a sign: State Property No Trespassing.
      Guess we can still come down from the north and ride it back up ... uggh ... down then up? I'd rather go up first, then enjoy the down as a reward.
