Tight, rooty, technical switchbacks. Makes for a challenging climb and a slow-tech descent.

       100% not a blue trail. 1000% a very technical black diamond. You cannot gain any speed going down hill, there are TONS of roots on it where you can easily catch your pedals (as I did twice on this trail) I would avoid this trail of you can. Unless you want to try your hand at a very technical black diamond trail.

       This trail is an acquired taste. It’s a bear to climb up to the start and despite losing elevation you’ll feel like you’re climbing the whole time. You will almost certainly be forced to yield to a fifty year old man climbing the trail on a cannondale lefty. Very techy and extremely slow for most mortals.

       Probably the most unique trail in the entire area. Twisty, rooty “gnar” without any major risk. I find this super fun.
