For the advanced rider this trail is extremely fun and a great trail to practice your ability to ride steep terrain. This trail is not recommended for beginners or even intermediate riders because of the terrain it's on and the path the trail takes down the mountain. This is not to say that it is not a well built trail, it is bermed nicely where you need to control your speed and even though its steep grades it still flows nicely. In the beginning of the trail there is quite a steep rock roll that can result in a painful fall, as most of the trail. Yes it is short but it is so fun.

Access Info

We recommend to ride this trail you park in the Ute Trail Parking lot although this lot can be crowded. To get to the trail from the parking lot you will want to ride up the driveway marked Ajax Trail. Ride about a fifth of a mile up this road to where the ajax trail starts. Ride the ajax trail until you come to the summer road. Ride the summer road up unit you get to a sharp almost 90 degree turn onto a road that goes to the south follow this road up to the bottom of bell chair a the lift to uphill lookers left when at the bottom of bell chair go behind it this is where the trail will start.
