This trail provides a good connection between Dutch Canyon and the WOW trail. It is smooth and easy to ride but it has a ton of switchbacks, and takes some cardio to get up and over. The berms are wide and make for some great flow. The East side which drops you into the hollow can be a bit tight, but the turns are smooth and rounded soft dirt, making for some fun drifty turning.

Great conditions. Try out the new spur at the summit well worth the 1/3 mile detour to see the valley from the top of Phosphate Hill.

 This one needs to be ridden backwards. There is a sign at the start that says downhill traffic only

 Must be ridden west to east! It is a one way, unless you want to get smoked by someone flying down the downhill portion haha trail is in great condition and the climb is worth it!

 No actual signs signifying one way, but either way I think descending to the east is better. Still a marginal descent either way, only short fast sections
