Hustler is a trail that most would consider a higher end intermediate trail. On the western side there are two main bridges that would be challenging to less experienced riders. While the trail has flow, it's flow that you'll have to work for with a few punchy climbs and elevation changes. The section on the eastern side of the creek is by far the most fun and flowy once you learn what gear to be in.


Due to the fact that Hustler sits with a SW to NE orientation it gets sun for most of the day. Chances are this trail will be dry enough to ride before most others after a rainfall.

It is highly recommended that this trail be ridden counter-clockwise. It is the most fun and it reduces the risk of collisions and impediments on the bridges.

       I really like this trail. I definitely enjoy it more riding it in the opposite direction that trailforks suggests. I find it much more flows and fun that way. It feels like there is a lot more downhill to enjoy even though the climb at the beginning is tougher. Added bonus is that you aren’t riding uphill on the skinny bridge when you ride it clockwise.

       The downside is the LARGE danger of a head on collision on the fastest part of the trail.
