       One of the best trails I’ve ridden! Proper enduro trail with everything a trail should have...even the punchy tech climbs. Loved the steep section at the end. The people who look after this trail can have a beer from me anytime, top work lads & lasses!!

       Great black trail with plenty of harder double black options. No crowds and great views equals amazing fun!

       The crown jewel of steamboat. This trail is excellent. It’s scenic, well maintained, and rides super well. Was a bit disappointed by other steamboat trails, but this one delivers.
