This is an awesome downhill trail. Really fast and flowy at the top. Some gap jumps made from logs will come up on you fast. Trail starts to get really rocky once you hit the ridge. Then the ridge starts to gown down steep and can be loose. Lots of jumps near the bottom. Amazing DH trail Not beginner or intermediate friendly.

      Bring a patch kit or run inserts, the middle section is spicy when taken at higher speeds. Lots of opportunity for flats

      Top is beautiful and keeps you on your toes so you don't blow off the trail into the meadow. The middle is an absolute gem of technical steep goodness. I need to hit that bottom section 5 more times to have a sense of what jumps go where; some pretty big hits for sure.

      Like another comment says it’s not quite double black compared to the doubles I’m used to in the SF Bay Area, but there are a few spots the are a good challenge in that middle chunky/tech section. I lucked out and hit it in late July right after an evening rain and the soil was superb.

      I've only ridden it the once, but I have to imagine that it would be much easier (more toward black) in the early summer when it's not as loose. For refernce, I found it more challenging in the super loose conditions than the black rated Bellingham trails I have ridden (like Ridge trail)

      This trail is full on in the middle section. The time I rode it in September it was very blown out. It's steep and loose which makes it fun in a hectic sort of way. If you like to get rowdy, this is the trail for you. This trail should be rated double black. The hard parts are a step up from most black rated trails and will leave non-experts walking several to many of the steep and loose downhill sections.

      Just for reference this is easier than most single black trails where I live

      The trail markers literaly say to only ride using a downhill style bike. There are a lot of fun, steep, and really technical features, but candidly, I consider this to be a double-black diamond trail in comparison to other stuff I have ridden around the tetons.

      So steep and techie your arms will be happy little noodles by the bottom. First third is fast and flowy through fields of flowers with glorious views of the Tetons. Second third is a steep white knuckler with fun mini kickers interspersed. The third section is a killer free ride trail with optional lines for all levels of maniac. Would ride this again.
