This is an epic trail with a fast and furious downhill. Embedded rocks all along the way down. Lost of places to grip climbing up, though sometimes loose in locations where it gets a bit washed out in some spots that are like little gullys. But a lot of buff sections as it gets a lot of traffic during summer.

       This is a super fun downhill with a little tech here and there, good flow, couple hills, and then lots of tight turns in the trees. I would shuttle this and not do all the climbs if you can find anyone that would with a 4wd. Not sure if I’d ride it again otherwise.

       It's a grind. Beautiful, but the climb is brutal, especially if you're not used to the elevation. Read my write up about it at twowheeledwanderer.com/posts/teocalli-ridge-not-all-its-hyped-up-to-be
