A very challenging technical trail. I rode it Feb 2018 and it badly needed a trim of the encroaching brush/cactus in a few areas. I personally would consider it no more difficult than a typical black at most riding areas, but the "dangerous" vegetation does add another challenge when picking your way up or down a technical trail while also having to worry about what you might brush up against. The trail tread itself was fantastic and would be my favorite trail in Los Barriles. The overhanging death thorns and Cholla just block a few of the available line choices. I also enjoy overgrown primitive trails someone who doesn't won't like this trail.

 There are sections on this trail that are not maintained, some very narrow loose rock on side Hill. Rideable but be prepared for the unknown

 Trail needs brushing. Otherwise it was as I hoped it would be. Challenging, rough, and some decent exposure requiring expert riding skills.

 Road today and really enjoyed it. maintenance has been completed on 1/3 of the double black section but much of the around the horn is still loose and sketchy, experience riders only, fantastic views
