Beginner 20%, intermediate 80% and advanced 20%, 2.7 mile MTB trail which is a bi-directional wide singletrack that is up and down with some technical sections through a wash, steep sections and rocky areas that will test a lessor skilled rider. The trail tread is mostly packed dirt with some loose uphill sections mixed in with several rocky areas. The preferred direction (more downhill) is east to west, but it is a major connector and is often ridden west to east as part of some fun loops.

       We took Old Post to Skywalker. Mostly uphill with some small descents.

       Lots of loose rocks. Grip required!

       Not for sure if it was Old Post or Carrol Canyon that had a really jagged, uphill, climb. Most likely have to walk this one.

       Yeah what he said. From the bottom it’s just one big rocky climb. Not much fun. Do it from the north south
