      Very loose ground, big chunks of rock on trail. Not recommended.

       Very steep and loose with a lot of drops and rock features. The double black rating is no joke!

       Pretty loose, and if you go too slow, your likely to go over the bars. Make sure your bike has a slack head angle.

       Hike-a-bike for 70ish% of the way. Very steep and technical going down. Not for beginning. Expert level and dangerous with plenty of rock and sand.

       Probably my favorite trail at Hawes, but certainly not for everybody. Tread is steep and narrow, with some decent chunk and some fun drops. You're likely to get lots of "You're riding THIS on a bike?!" comments from hikers...
