Hueso is a beautiful masterpiece of trail that goes from below where the Entrails routes end. The trail head starts about a hundred metres to the right of Gouranga, It's a series of south facing grippy rock slabs with some slightly easier panty lines on the harder sections. It's best ridden dry, but the rock is very grippy, so confident riders (who've hit the trail before) could probably ride it wet. Lower your tire pressure before dropping in.

Access Info

It’s right next to the insane Highway to Hell track; in-between Highway to Hell and 2-Stroke Smoke.

       Very much a double black and not a single black. The rock slabs are too steep for this to be a black run. Great views from the top though.

       Kinda disagree. Double blacks should be reserved for pretty heavy trails. Hueso is one of my all-time favourites but it's not that hard. Kinda think it should be returned to single black status. Or we need more diamonds for trails like Treasure and Intestinal

       I agree, huseo is a black (except for the optional big huck of the rock ). Double blacks are trails like intestinal, larvicide, treasure. Big moves with big consequences not huseo. Love this trail though!

       If this a single black trail, it is the hardest black trail I have ever done. No ride arounds and falling on some of those rock faces spell disaster. My dad broke his shin bone on this trial. However Treasure Trail is on another level...tough call in terms of rating.

       It's a squamish single black. Ratings are relative, and there is much higher difficulty than this trail here.

       I gotta agree that this is the hardest single black trail I've ever ridden as well!

       It doesn't really matter if this is a hard black or an easy red, it's an amazing trail and you should go ride it.

       Good morning trail forks, as the builder of Hueso I would like to allowed Every one in the trail including emtb ,would it be possible to change it in the description please and thanks.Also for the double black or single black debate...Hueso is a double black because of 1 or 2 features .When thy are ranking a trail they always rank it by its most difficult feature ,thats why. Peace Fred

       There’s a pretty big debate wether this trail is single or double black, as someone who’s ridden the vast majority of Squamish trails, this trail is definitely a double black anywhere else but compared to other Squamish gnar it’s not on the difficult end, personally hueso earns its double black name because of some the mandatory slabs, but it’s definitely the easiest double black in Squamish. But rating doesn’t matter because it is an awesome slab trail and is super fun
