       Fun trail, but don't come into this thinking it's a nice flowy blue. Starting from Bear Creek, this trail has a long, steep, lung-busting, soul-crushing climb that is pretty root-y, and somewhat technical. It also has fast, white-knuckle descents that'll really test you brakes. If you're not up for for a challenge, or are with a newer rider, consider skipping this one and taking Pinhoti 2 instead.
