Great trail if you're looking for more single track than JEM can offer. This trail has some fun technical sections, fast downhills, and cows. This trail can be made a loop with JEM by either taking Gould's Rim or riding the road for a bit on Highway 59. Great as an out and back as well. Amazing views of the canyon and surrounding area.

 We rode the Hurricane Rim loop from our campsite off of Sheep Bridge Road. (all 24.5 miles). Hurricane Rim follows the edge of the mesa most of the time. It ia a mix of technical and hard pack with punchy, technical climbs (mostly loose rock that is hard to gripe and steep grades) that will test your fitness. Really fun trail, either as an out and back or part of the bigger loop. I would rate the technical as intermediate at the most. I rode everything and I am definitely not an expert rider.

 I put it back to blue. It was blue (Intermediate) when originally added. There are some short difficult sections, but you're right, not enough to make the entire trail expert.
