Intermediate 80% and advanced 20%, 2.6 mile MTB trail which is a bi-directional wide singletrack that has a lot of up and down component during this potentially very fast ride. The trail tread is mostly packed dirt mixed with loose rocks during extended dry periods. There is no preferred direction, but the trail rides fastest in the east to west direction. The trail can serve as a connector for several not so popular loops.

       Loose rocks even in the best conditions. Lots of dirt, not much slickrock. Clitfrom either side and u get some gravely rock. Not bad but not fun. Great views though. Great view of Hangover.
      Good way to connect to the river trail.
      I do this to connect, not for anything the trail offers (other than views)
