This is one of the iconic trails at 18 Road. Endless undulating singletrack that takes you along the tops of little hills. Some up flow, but mostly fast and down, gotta hit this when here.

Disclaimer

This is a downhill only trail.

       Drops on both sides of the skinny singletrack but loads of fun. Not very Rocky. Smooth fast flow. Very peaceful.

       I wouldnt describe this trail as peaceful. Its scenic, sure, but it absolutely deserves its black diamond rating for a couple of the 100 foot almost-vertical-chutes that could break a few bones if your not 100% focused. I would describe it as FULL ON, despite the lack any rock gardens. An absolute blast regardless of what I assumed it to be based on the other comment.

       Overrated, some cool sections, but overall a very pedally and slow downhill trail, more like a blue for experienced riders. There are some exposed sections, but as long as you can ride in a straight line you will be fine.
      Worth a ride, just maybe not worth the uphill.

       Still would not give this a black diamond rating. Blue black but only for the few really steep sections. It's mostly blue as the trail is pretty smooth.
