This trail is a narrow, hand-built bench cut that flows great. The extension is relatively smooth until you pass the gas line then it gets more technical but all very rideable.

       “Rode” it from leniency trail down. All rocks. I wouldn’t call this an intermediate trail at all. We walked most of it. I’m just getting in to mountain biking but am not new to riding a bike so take hat for what it is.
