This is a fun downhill but you can climb it if you want, just watch out for the bikes flying down. There are better ways to climb to sidewinder and the other trails in the area. The trail is narrow and has a few areas that can cause less adventurous riders apprehension.

      Everything is dry, however on the Mesa good conditions because so much is rock. Just please manage braking without locking up.

      Everything is dry, but in surprisingly good shape. A good soaking rain would really help.

       The description had my wife nervous but the trail is more tame than described. All the"drops" are easily rolled. We felt this trail is bluer than sidewinder.

       Definitely blue if descending and blue black as an ascent. One chunky section in bottom third. Fun both directions.
