This trail is not for everyone, the uphill is a lung buster and the down hill is very technical but fun.
This is a Black Diamond going up and one spot is Double Black Diamond coming down.
It has awesome panoramic views of the Valley Floor.
This trail is called Hoo Doo and you will see why toward the end of the trail.
If you are not a true expert rider DO NOT RIDE THIS TRAIL,

This trail has a lot of solid rock off camber with exposure.
Coming later this summer will be a separate downhill called The Gorge.

The trail start is off Lost Goldmine about a 1.3 miles from the Cloudview parking lot, it is only marked with a Cairn at the top of the down hill to Cougar.

 Major kudos to whoever created this trail! We need more of this, not only out there, but ALL OVER Az! This rad trail is on the same gnar-par as Hangover, IMHO. Totally loved it! Idk that I’d fully consider it a double black, but it’s definitely accurate as a warning to deter those that could find themselves in trouble. Lots of exposure and some tricky moves needed to clean the whole thing... my fav kind of trail!!
