Highly technical single track with many rock features. Some flowy sections with many slabs and rocky sections to climb up or roll down. Parallels Watson Lake and has stunning views. There are fairly mellow sections of the trail, but most of it is technical climbing and descending through the boulders, rock formations and slabs around the Granite Dells. A real challenge even for those with excellent bike-handling skills. Going over the bars could easily result in broken bones in many places, so be careful! Not recommended for beginning-intermediate riders unless they want to walk through many sections. Best times to ride are Fall and Spring although many winter days can be dry and perfect. This is a very unique and challenging trail system not to be missed by those riders looking to push their limits on technical terrain. Doesn't matter what kind of bike you ride, just be able to handle it well!
