       Fun trail. Steep sections. I am pushing my luck with this one at 67 years old, but I love it. Maybe I can ride the whole thing next time.

       Trail ratings are hard with such a limited range of options, but this is more of an easy black/double blue imo especially with the tech climb section. Had a newbie friend worried that blue trails would be beyond his skill after trying to ride this on his first ride.
      Lower thirsty Beaver is an easier trail and is rated black to give some idea. Fun trail to connect with truffle shuffle.
