This is a rocky trail with some tight switchbacks. It can be fun in both directions.

       This trail is just as technical as rocky ridge... not sure why this one's rated blue. Trail is shorter than rocky, but it (for the most part) has better flow and there are more corners. Good fun. Best ride here is when you connect both rocky ridge and styles.

       PUMP UP YOUR TIRES! This trail is insanely fun to blast through but be careful of some of the sharper rocks. I’ve ended up with two flats up there the could’ve been avoided if I ran like 40psi

       I'm puzzled about this being a blue trail as well. There are a lot of long, rocky sections that will blow you mind ascending or descending.

       After the rain this year, Stiles has changed to be significantly more technical on the section from the parking lot up to top of the first climb. The initial ascent is now rockier than Rocky Ridge. Super challenging.

       I agree with the last comment. Lots of rocks are further exposed making for a lot more tech than Rocky Ridge. It’s a great and challenging climb for beginner to intermediate riders. There are a lot of mini steep climbs from boulders if you don’t choose the smoothest lines. I would definitely call the climb more difficult than Rocky by a little bit and the descent much more technical.

       Like others have said, super chunky and should be black diamond. As an advanced beginner to intermediate rider it's definitely a challenge and I had to dabble my way through a few sections. No scrapes or falls so life is good Smile

       If you are looking for a flowy gravity trail, then this is NOT it. The switchbacks are hard a rocky. If you are going to do this trail, go up it, and down the other side. The other side is a much more fun downhill

       Very dry, with several dry brush torn on the side edge of the trail. Very rocky. Can be fun.
