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.

Lots of water erosion, but everything still ride-able.

 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!
