First half is fairly sensible, probably about the same level as a black run. The second half gets steeper and steeper. The left fork has a pretty hard rock section. This marked trail is the left fork which is as fast and flowy as super steep trails get. If steep fast technical trails are your thing this is unmissable. T

These trails aren't built for the high numbers of users, and they're built by people on their own free time after work or on days off. Riding in big groups ruins these trails and they are unofficial - so the less impact on the land the better. If you're planning to organise a big group ride it would only be polite to talk to the builders - ask in the local bike shops. Some trails in this area have been ruined by races...

This trail is unsanctioned.
