Moose Knuckles is a very steep and technical trail that descends from near the intersection of Danimal and Industrial Disease. There are some nice rock drops but unfortunately the middle of the trail is getting fairly eroded. Good luck

Access Info

The trail is access by riding Danimal South or Lower Sproatt and is usually combined with High Society for a long double-black descent off the Flank trail

       Does anyone know why this trail is marked as "closed"?

       Nice option to ride to the valley bottom though fairly eroded in places. The entrance is probably the hardest section, gets a bit easier afterwards though still lots of awkward rock drops and rolls

       Nice techy descent. It's challenging and amusing. Very Worthwhile if you are around, although not a destination per se. It's your best option after Pura Vida.

       I would recommend not going in from the top - go in from the middle; that’s where moose knuckles originally started from. The upper part is the end of old Industrial Disease which is frankly not worth the risk anymore.
