Mostly intermediate trail from the top of Cobal Canyon back to the rest area. Possibly the most challenging of the Marshal Canyon "official" trails. This is a fairly steep descent but nothing unmanageable. What makes this trail tricky is some rutting in the middle combined with a tight and steep switchback at the lower end.

      Conditions are currently epic; grip for days. Small rut through the middle of certain parts of the trail but very manageable.

      Loosey goosey y'all. Still fun to shred though. Just be cautious and stay heads up! Oh and some ruts half way down the trail, not that bad though....
