Parallels Meet Your Maker. There are a few forks on the trail, but all end in essentially the same place along The Graduate. Generally not too hard, but with a chute and rock face or two that elevates the trail just a bit beyond blue.

       A fun flowy trail, but probably more of a black trail than blue considering some of the rocks/features. Looking forward to riding it again.

       Signs at the top and along this trail are marked --not with a blue square-- but with a brown oval. What's that all about?? This trail should definitely be rated and marked as a black diamond, not a blue (or brown!).

       This is a black trail due to a few tougher features on it. The nap doesn't make it clear but it does so back and forth across the hill so it seems longer than meet yer maker and the features are more challenging. If you've ridden meet yer maker this trail is a good step up. Note that in all of Valleycliff the trail markers have pictures instead of difficulty ratings. For example this one has a dot and Spencer's has a rainbow.

       I don't know about flowy but it's a pretty challenging and gnarly trail a few loose bits. Inadvertently took a few offshoot trails (seems to be common in Valleycliffe) and ended up in some super gnarly bits, tight, STEEP, root drops...wild!
