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.

       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!

       This trail was totally destroyed by rains last year. There is a huge section of the trail that is about a 1 foot rut for a few hundred yards. A go-around was forming but it's fate will be the same I'm sure.
