This trail is better accessed from the bottom near the Golf House. Accessing through the Ritz will make for a long HAB to the junction. Upper Javalina is a short steep climb. Technical skills and deep lungs are required to clear the climb in the saddle. This trail is very, very rocky so line choice is key. Because of the open visibility of the trail it can be ridden at a very fun pace. There are a few small drops, pinches, and rolls. A couple jumps and even a few rock faced switchback berms towards the lower half. A few extra PSI in the tires wouldn't be a bad idea.
