Golf ball size red rocks and water bars all down the trail make this DH super fun. A few quick and rocky sharp descents make this one of the most fun trails that is close to the city. It is a difficult climb, with lots of places to test your climbing skill, but totally worth the climb for the drop down to the creek. See if you can rip the stairs and make the climb on the other side of the creek, a fun finish, but not easy.

      All dried out after the winter. Will still be wet after a rain storm though, of course.

       Single black diamond. Fight grade creep.

       Maybe the worst trail I've ever ridden. A lot of these hiking trails are being ridden and I don't mind that. This one is not worth your time unless you've ridden every trail in a 45 minute radius and are sick of them all.
