Description

This is a great trail that is really fun to ride in both directions. As an ascent, there are constant ledgy power moves, often found smack in the middle of a tight switchback! As a descent, these moves become fun technical challenges as you bounce down the hill.

There are some fun challenging rock sections and some tough rewarding turns. The trail meanders from the pinyon juniper woodland up into an old burn that travels through some cool rock outcroppings and provides some great views of the surrounding valleys and mountain ranges.

Access this one from the top of Fire Canyon or Tectonic Shift.

Great climb through desert fields with giant boulders strewn about.
