Mostly just DH, lots of rocks but not very long. Certainly a black going up it but definitely a blue going down it. HTH.

Access Info

Easiest access is on the western side, riding the blue trails to it. Also accessible from the eastern side from 83, just a longer (scenic) ride.

       Not really a bidirectional trail. Larger river rock takes up the majority of the trail with some fast, hard pack dirt lines intermixed. Mostly just a DH trail and it's extremely quick. Do yourself a favor and use the green trail to go to the top and bomb it down. Past the rock sets it flows back towards the green trail well. HTH.

       This is a fun ride down and a tough ride up. I usually have to stop several times going up (OK 7 times). The trail has a bunch of loose rocks on the lower section, but there is a narrow dirt path where others have ridden. One day I saw a couple ride all the way up with out stopping. They were both riding Pivots with clip-less pedals.
