More difficult than 841 but nothing scary. What makes this hard is the speed and tech combo. Watch the pedal catchers and let 'er rip Don't come any where near your brake rotors when you're done.

      As others have mentioned this trail is in bad shape. It's in desperate need of a re-route due to erosion issues. The 200ft section is un-ride-able...

       One of the most fun trails in Boulder County. Definitely not a double diamond run. There are no mandatory jumps or drops and it's not quite as steep as the other LHOHV trails. Prone to ruts after heavy rains. But the single worst part of this trail is that it's too short!
