This trail runs from the cattle guard between towers 20 and 21, along the ridge to tower 0. it can be ridden from either end. This trail has been restored and is undergoing further development to increase its enjoyment. This trail offers amazing viewpoints while enticing the rider with everything from green double track to black diamond rock garden descents. When the trail gets technical there are optional green routes for riders seeking a more relaxing ride. There are sections to challenge all levels of riders. Families please be aware this trail follows the bluffs along the southern edge of the mountain, children should be monitored.
