Intermediate 20 %, advanced 70% and expert 10%, .68 mile MTB trail which is a bi-directional singletrack that is a fast twisty bermed trail with feathers designed for the airborne crowd, There is a 3’ high diving board with a 20’ slab rock landing zone, several other jumps where you become airborne and a table top near the end that needs to be looked at before hit too aggressively. The trail tread is mostly packed dirt and there are sections built on solid rock through several drainages. The preferred direction definitely downhill due to fast moving downhill riders, but some riders ride it uphill so beware when riding it.

      Jumps are a bit blown out from the rain. A bit tougher than usual but still good to go.

       A super fun trail with some good jumps of no consequences if one doesn’t hit them perfectly. It’s a good way to wrap up the other hog trails before heading back to the trailhead. It would also be fun to run laps using Precary for the ascent.

       Really sick trail! Some of the features were a little too advanced for me, but the epic ride will keep me coming back!
