Intermediate 20%, advanced 70% and expert 10%, 1.35 mile MTB trail which is a bi-directional singletrack that is a twisty up and down trail with a number of very technical uphill sections that will test a lesser skilled rider. The trail tread is mostly packed dirt mixed with rocks and a number of slickrock sections. There is no preferred direction but it is an easier ride in the north to south direction. The trail is a good connector trail to increase the difficulty level for several other fun loops.

       Great views and a demanding trail but worth the effort and a good look coupled with its neighbor black diamond trails.

       Challenging trail in either direction. One of my favorite local loops. Technical, jagged flow with some fun drops. The trail will definitely push you more and keep you more on your toes than other single black diamond rated trails in the area.
