Description
Scraped, cut, punctured, bruised and battered....these are words you'll become intimate with if you ride here with "developing" technical skills. My first ride here left me with less blood than what I came with, and the will to return (with armour) to conquer the beast.

I consider myself strong intermediate skill-wise, and this was the most difficult trail I have ridden to date (1.5 years), full of bouldery obstacles. Many of the features are very unique and the challenges are interestingly enticing. I consider this trail a playground for the XC masochists. I may be overstating this...just maybe.

The trail is tight, difficult to follow (keep a sharp eye for small cairns) and a megaton of fun. There is also an ample supply of cactus on the very edge of the trail, ready to become one with you (trust me on this one) & your tires.

All said, this trail is new on my favorites list and it is likely to be on yours as well.

**NOTE** As with most if not all of the trails at Cowboy, body armour is recommended unless your technical skills are very polished.
