Mostly down hill flow run. Has a climb from trail head until you go into the canyon, which is very steep with loose rock. Once you are in the canyon it has miles of down hill flow with some technical rock gardens and small drops along the way. After about 6 miles you start to climb some until you hit the cliff face. Here it is a narrow, steep switchback that is best to carry your bike up to the lower Trail Head. Be aware that this trail is open to motorcycles as well. I would rate this as between a blue and black. Most of it is pretty easy but there are some tough sections. Last time I rode this I endoed in a rock garden and blew out my fork seals with a 5" travel bike. Better suited to enduro or AM bike.

Access Info

Best to shuttle by leaving a vehicle at the lower trail head. Can ride from here, but it is about 5 miles of uphill dusty gravel road.
