This is a steep trail that that lots of little roots to start, then as it descends deeper into the woods the roots get bigger and the turns tend to get washed out and rutted as the season progresses.

       Meh. Very rooty and twisty. And loads of dust.

       Short but fun. Steep with several small drops and some large gap jumps when you hit the creek/drainage. Loose, dusty soil, but steep enough that you can blast through it.

       This trail should be rated double black. Compared to other black trails in the area it's much steeper, with lots of roots, drops, and moondust

       It was originally marked as double black, some people complained that it was not a double black. I prefer to err on the safe side. This trail has also changed through the years, originally it was not very blown out or ridden much at all, I think it has gotten a bit more rutted with deeper brake bumps.

       Pretty funny that the first commented called this trail “meh”. Such a fun, raw n rowdy trail with a few good drops. Wish it was longer!

       Short but not just left to rot as most downhill trails in PCMR have been. The catch berms really make this trail great.

       I'm surprised this trail isn't rated over 4.0! Such a good trail with lots of good root drops and technical riding. It definitely not anything under black. It takes quite a bit of bike knowledge and skill to make all the drops and turns cleanly all the way down.
