This is the upper (or Blues) part of Rhythm and Blues. The terrain quickly changes from soft and smooth packed crypto soil, to rocky and loose sections. Odd rock formations with some sharper sandstone edges will test your maneuverability and balance as you make your way slowly around the top section.

       A good effort in trailbuilding but not very well executed - switchbacks and gully’s too tight to get any flow going. TTFs are mostly rocks you have to squeeze between. Might be good on a hard tail if you’re trying to work on balance.

       A very flowy, oh wait, downshift here's another short 1st gear wall. You'll go from 5th to 1st within a crank. Stuff changes and comes up fast on this trail. You're flowing, then corner or crest, then oh look a tech sec, better be alert and have the right line or you'll wish you did. I give kudos to the trailbuilders. I think they did great for what they had to work with. Some really cool. unique, and challenging sections. and don't forget to enjoy the views from the higher ground.

       This is my favorite trail of this area. It’s super unique with the crazy hilly terrain. Best from SW to NE as shown, but could work both ways. I preferred starting the “climb” on the lowest trail both times headed SW and this trail and Rock-N-Roll back (NE). One of the first washes is eroded, looks safe but slightly tries to toss you over the bars.
