An awesome rip off the Monarch Crest Trail. Little jumps to air out on when you hit the rocky sections on the edges. Takes you down through some trees with some roots. No big air, but constant little jumps keep this trail really fun

Dry and dusty, but fun! Lots of bowling-ball sized rocks hanging out on the trail to bounce between, maybe kicked up by motos.

Snow in spots, very wet up high. Give it another week to avoid trail damage. Dry down low.

 This trail is tops! Loads of rocks, roots and mini drops. It's techy but has awesome flow! I normally stay away from double black rated trails, but I found this trail to be 100% rideable.

 Has to be one of my all time favorite descents on a mtn bike anywhere, and I have done a lot of rides in my life!
