The most technically demanding trail in the BD system, the Hurl is a badge of honor and a fun trail overall. Riding it outbound from BD, you get a nice warm up, but the pitch increases quickly, and combined with loose rock, most riders dismount here and there. Once on top, the views are fantastic and the DH is twisty, rocky, and fun. If reversed, the climb is 100% rideable with practice and the DH into BD is shorter and steeper.

       Hurl is my go to trail in Nevada when I want to test my physical condition, I instantly know from my time what my level of condition is because the trail is a healthy balance of technical and climbing that can be ridden in roughly 20 minutes which is what a lot of folks use for testing power thresholds. It also has great views at the top and while the downhill is ride-able, I don't find it particular fun because of all the loose rock.

       20 minutes is just for the climb (see Strava segment)
