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.

      A few spots of wet dirt but no real mud. This little bit of moisture on your tires will make the rocks VERY slippery.

       This should be a double black diamond rated trail. The concept is wonderful, but there are some spots where there are blind drops that are unexpected. Some of the rocks are rollable, and some aren’t. This makes it hard to ride it with confidence unless you have ridden it many times and know what to expect where. This could be a 5 star trail with some improvements

       This trail is amazing! I was blown away with how much fun it was! Wow, what a unique trail. If you can't track stand, bunny hop, or wheelie do not ride this trail as you will hate it. This is a slow speed extremely technical trail with exposure and potential consequences if you crash on some of the double black features. A huge kudos to Overland Mountain Bike club for building this trail, it's truly amazing and there is nothing like this trail anywhere in this area. Yes there are some spots that are some lines that are blind and some big drops you should roll up and scope out, but, sometimes you've just gotta send it!!!

       Single black. Lots of punchy technical climbing. Don't let the sign scare you. You can always walk.
