      Super rocky and technical, but no debris. Some loose sections, but that’s just part of it. Be prepared to hike and bike!

       This is not a blue/intermediate trail. Local signage has it as a black and having just ride the trail, I would agree that it is for experts only.

       Blue? That's laughable. It's marked on the trail as an expert trail and that's a fair assessment. This is an incredibly tough trail. All ye be warned!

       To agree with previous commenters, there are plenty of genuine black diamond obstacles on this trail, and a good deal of exposure. A very fun trail but beginners and intermediates don’t be bashful about doing a little hike a bike.
