Completed during summer 2016 by the KCTS, the Rusty Chainsaw trail adds slightly more challenging cross-country riding to the Bluffs trail network. Lots of elaborate trail construction, technical crux moves and incredible views.Ride in a counter clockwise direction.

Getting overgrown due to nonuse between the hot and dry. Great time to get out to use this trail that is not currently blown out by drought and use.

Minor Water drainage issue, standing water on trail surface. Incredible trail, a welcome addition to the Bluff Trail, reminds me of Utah!
