       Fast and loose in the month of August. Watch for down trees. I have a feeling that not to many mountain bikers know about this little goodie.

       Beautiful trail, and pretty fun coming down but in my opinion it isn’t a black diamond. It’s steep but not too technical. The problem with this trail is it’s hard to make a loop. Pony Express up from Strawberry is a horrible dry riverbed. Probably all rideable but it would take truly elite level fitness to do it.
