Primarily a downhill trail but you can hike up it if you really want to, or at the very least give your trials skills a good working out. This trail is an alternative to going straight down Geronimo, both are quite technical. This one with its fair share of drops and technical switchbacks earns it every bit of its black diamond rating.

       Pushed and carried my bike up 90% of it. Won't make that mistake again. It was nice that I was the only one over there though... but for good reason. I did enjoy linking to national and Mormon though on the way down.

       Is this also known as ‘Cochise’?
      Top part of Geronimo was fun and much easier, made the mistake of turning right to descend down here, brutal. Harder than 24th/Mormon in my opinion

       Brutally hard trail to go down. Can’t imagine too many riders being able to descent the trail. Lots of tight, steep corners with randomly placed rocks. Would not call it an mtb trail. Possibly Geronimo is a better option.
