Description
Also known as "Grandview Rim" this is a very smooth, fast, and curvy trail with lots of turns and great views down into the valley. Built in 2000, it is a beautiful example of trail design and construction at its best.

The northern portion of the trail, after you cross Big Canyon Trail, is more of a cruiser, with graceful curves and smooth trail along the way.
