It’s not super rocky, but there are a lot of roots, there are 3 bridges but one is mostly broken but you can bunny hop it(tried fixing it but some dirt bikers went through and destroyed it), non are big. There’s a lot of loose rocks, not a lot of berms. It gets really rocky at the bottom and very steep. After you reach the canyon road you can ride down the road and go down the flume.

Access Info

We measured it and it is exactly 6 miles up the canyon, you go down a atv road and you will know when you reach it.( there’s a log sticking up out of the ground).

      The dirt is perfect, but there are a few fallen trees. Take it easy until they’re cleared.

      Very awesome trail! Ride it before the snow comes. This trail is a wreck in winter and spring.

       It’s my favorite trail in this area, there no man built jumps, but it’s a lot more technical. But there’s usually a few trees that fall over onto it.

       It’s unridable right now unless you like mud and snow.

       Could some one please tell me how to get people to confirm trails I’ve added?

       This trail is looking awesome. I have to disagree though this is much more of a blue than a black with very few difficult trail features. It is by far my favorite trail in Ephriam canyon.
