The start of this trail isn't always maintained the best. But has been cleared in the last year. After the first 0.6 miles it clears out is regularly kept up. It is best done as a point to point. The trail gets steep in spots and have the second half has some technical rock gardens. There are also some exposed edges. Expect the trail to take around 35-60 minutes to ride.

Trail not maintained as of 6/2/2018. Pine cones and fallen trees galore. Trail lacked technical features and should not be marked as a black diamond.

 Fun raw trail. The beginning starts out on a bit of a fire road then narrows to single track. I posted a video of this trail in the VIDEO TAB. I would describe the trail as quite tame at times / pedally than all of a sudden it will get steep and loose with technical rocks gardens. Then back to pedally and boom technical. Thunder Mtn DH in my opinion is a more fun ride but this trail I feel has slightly harder rock gardens due to the loose nature of the trail and steepness at times. I definitely recommend this trail but if you only have time for 1 trail in the Kirkwood area ride Thunder Mtn DH.
