      Someone is removing many of the rocks on this trail in an attempt to make it easier. Technical sections now have ride-arounds and chunky areas...

      Great trail to work on your technical skills. Not fast or particularly fun, except in the effort of trying to ride it clean. I rode it clockwise, and the hardest parts are towards the end after the big wash.

      Short, but fun trail that’s a slow technical ride. Not a destination, but if you live in the area give it a ride and test your skills. I’ve only ridden it clockwise the 6 or so times I’ve ridden it, plan to give ccw a trie on my next go.

      I would not recommend this trail for mountain biking, it is routed and cut for hikers in mind as the primary users.

      If techy rock gardens are your jam then this trail is for you! Best ridden clockwise but counterclockwise will put the toughest part of the trail at the very beginning while you climb.

      Fun techy loop. I went counterclockwise. Seems like it would be good clockwise as well.
