A long and steady climb to mid mesa where you can either go down the directional or continue up to the mesa top. This trail changes character after the first mile from wide and buffed to tighter and more technical. It has decent flow going up and takes you through some interesting landscape features. Coming down this trail is a blast for riders of all skill levels, just use good etiquette and mind the uphill traffic.
