Primarily a climbing trail, but can be ridden as a descent as well. Starts from the top of the Skully's climb and leads up all the way up to the top of the ridge. The trial up is steep with lots of switchbacks, and a few technical moves.

The top of the Trial is the highest point in the network. From there, either drop off the backside on Adios, or traverse over to the Preston Legacy forest on Connector or Amigos (also known as Brown's Trace).

If you decide to traverse, be prepared for some confusing intersections, difficult rolling terrain and lots of branching trails.

       Pretty sweet climb with just enough steep and tech to make it borderline blue. The fun really starts over the backside of the peak, with makes this climb all the more rewarding. There are some alt lines for descending this trail as well.
