An extremely technical but incredibly fun trail, a technical riders dream. Follow the black diamond or double black diamond markers to each obstacle. Heed the warning sign at the beginning of the trail. There are no go arounds and this trail is for expert riders only. Expect drops, technical pinch points and big rock rolls. All doable by the expert level rider but bring your trials skills because this is a slow speed trail. If you can't track stand, bunny hop, or wheelie you will hate this trail.

      Mostly dry, but there are still some drifts in a couple of places. Ride or walk through the snow and not around.

      just a *wee* bit wetter than ideal. By the time you see this, it'll probably be hero dirt or completely dry again.
