This trail is a series of very fun packed dirt chutes, rolling uphills, and a few optional small drops. The downhill is extremely fun and flowy but also fairly short. You will end in a sandy wash, cross this and the climbing trail will be to your left. The dirt in the chutes is prone to erosion, so after heavy rains or heavy use the trails tend to get rutted out.

 Super fun, short swoopy ride! Think Jurassic park water slides without the water. Love it! We started at the 50 year trailhead, rode to The Chutes then back down 50 year for an 11km romp. Great for an early eve ride or loop it twice to get those miles in.
