Steep trail with a mix of old school and new school switchbacks and loamy sections of trail. Old line and new line cross each other, lots of options to mix it up makes a hundred ways to ride this trail Some small rock gardens, a view, and technical natural features plentiful. This trail is second only to Nervous Shakedown in terms of vertical drop for trails on the Bluff.

       One ride and I'm addicted. Tons of trail options and ways to ride features. Definitely worth exploring for intermediate-advanced riders. Some pretty steep sections so make sure your brakes are dialed in!
