This trail brings you right to the edge of the mesa, and flows over rocks, gravel with some difficult sections, but good practice for the more difficult slick rock sections. Riding this is surreal as the trees on your left move quickly while the endless view on the right is static. A must ride section to complete the Gooseberry experience

      The amount of work it takes to get to this ride, I’m kind of disappointed. I mean I had fun but I was off a lot due to the steep transitions. ...
