Good connector from Johnson Hole down to the canyon. Follows along the canyon cliff. Difficulty is expert because the beginning is a bit technical, but more because of the sheer cliffs with loose rock. Cost of failure could be high.

      Trail is dry, but at the rock boulders there is some kind of construction that is totally block the old road making it hard or impossible to link...

       Not sure why anyone would rate this a black trail. It's easy to ride in either direction with no technical features whatsoever. There is a little bit of exposure, but nothing scary. This should be rated green or at most a mild blue.

       I changed it to blue. The trail was imported from another database which had the trail added back in 2010 before the bridge. The exposure was really bad, and it was really difficult before the construction where it turns off to the old river bridge. But yah, I didn't realize this was still a black. I don't want to send families with little kids with that exposure, so I'll keep it blue.
