Challenging, technical singletrack that is fun and challenging in both directions. Don't think you can just roll down this trail back to the car as it feels uphill both directions. For the advanced rider comfortable with punchy, slow-speed technical moves

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

      This is a very technical ride which is fun to test your skill but not a very fast ride.

       The description is spot on. Actually has more flow uphill than down. When you have time to spare and you like slow mountain bike specific uphill tech moves use this trail to climb up cowboy trails.

       Both above comments bang on - but gotta say the fossil trail up is a lot more rideable

       Love this trail for its technical challenges. Moderate climb or descent, depending which direction you go. Personally I prefer the climb.

       Although there was beauty, the rocks were jagged, and the cactis were moody, I hoped my tubes wouldn’t get snagged. Kibbles-n-Bits, can throw you a fit, so don’t loose your shit, and muster your grit. Because this trail is one entertaining son of a bitch!
