Lots of vertical packed into 4 miles. Brutal climbing makes for mostly awesome descending in both directions. Sometimes flowy, sometimes technical, sometimes hairy. Popular with hikers - be courteous. E-Bikes are allowed on the lower half of this trail but inside of the Tortolita Mountain Park managed by Pima County.

       I didn’t notice any monsoon damage. There are still a couple hairball sections but it’s the same as ever.

       This is not a good mountain bike trail. I spent more time hiking with my bike then riding it. Not worth it.

       Super fun downhill. Has a bit of everything! Super chunky challenge. Great views and great riding. I like to access it from the backside as a Loop though rather than as an out and back.

       Rode this on 12/19/20. Great trail both directions. Loved the challenging climb up from the Ridgeline side and thoroughly enjoyed the technical decent on the other side. A few hikers in a Saturday but not bad. Highly recommend
