This is an extremely technical/steep but satisfying climb or a fairly technical downhill in the other direction. It can be linked to Pajarito Canyon Trail or Camp May Road Trail. Lots of Volcanic Tuff early on if climbing.

 Great rocky, technical downhill.
The climb up is pretty brutal. Steep with ledges and loose scree.

 I was pretty disappointed when riding this trail.
There are really technical rocky sections, but the majority of the trail is either mellow single track, or old fire road. I guess my expectations were not aligned with reality...

I can't imagine riding up this...props to those that do.
