This is a very technical trial. Lots of trial type riding during the climb and very technical on the way down, picking a good line and knowing your limitations is very important.

Access Info

 Awesome! One of the longest AM descents I've been on! Super fun! Amazing views in the spring!

 If you enjoy a nice technical climb this is a great trail to practice. You are not confined to narrow singletrack for most of the trail. This will give you a great chance to pick lines and work on that punchy rock climbing skill. The decent is a blast and seems like it goes for a very long time. Great reward for all that hard work getting to the top.
