A nice tight trail that links Otero Canyon to Blue Ribbon.

Description

We're really not sure where the name for this trail comes from, perhaps at one time it was Nasty.

At this point though it is a pretty sweet winding trail through the trees with only one ledge just before a hairpin (on the way up) that proves particularly difficult. On the way down you'd just ride off it. I guess it could be nasty if you clipped a tree because you were going too fast on the downhill. Otherwise this is a nice ride up from the bigger ponderosa trees of Otero Canyon to the pion pine and scrub oak forest up on the ridge to the east.
