       This is not a trail. This is a real bad time. Its more of an extreme OHV trail that is maniacally steep and soooo loose that its just terrible. Basically F every thing about this trail. You should only ride this if you are fully committed to ruining your whole day. The lower section is one of those deals where right when it starts getting all fun and flowy you start climbing again and it just sucks. PS some genius somehow managed to get his new truck stuck about 1/4 way down from the top (worst section). Still trying to figure out how exactly he got there.. but he's not leaving soon for sure. ANYWAY, don't ride this trail unless you really hate yourself.
