Predator's newest technical trail. It's a tight and tricky climb to get up to the top. Once you are up there, get your fill of Moab-style rock rides and some steep slabs. Finishes with a steep and loose section that can be avoided by choosing the "easy way" off to the right.

      Very poorly marked. Lost our way many times. Too bad, the parts we did ride were fun. Get Better Signage!

       Great trail, technical at times, I recommend taking this if you like to push yourself a bit. Would say it's closer to a single black in my experience.

       Great trail if it was marked properly! Needs some maintenance on the lower half after the rain.

       Great trail! Definitely my favorite part of Predator Ridge. Other than the chute at the end the trail is certainly a single black though.
