One of the area's best singletrack trails with a few ride options from a longer out and back, shuttle, or a lap or two on the upper sections for a quick fix. The trail is in somewhat sandy substrate so running a lower tire pressure is nice but its super easy to pinch flat in the rocks. The lower "gorge" section is a "Intermediate/Difficult" rocky commitment so plan accordingly.

Great fun trail. Nice workout going up. There are some hike over rock sections but that depends on your level. Easy trail to follow to the top....
