A tiered downhill with several steep sections spread throughout.

Description

600ft of elevation change in just under 0.7 miles makes for an average gradient of about 16%. This trail is tiered, however, so there are flatter sections and several much steeper sections - one entailing exposed sandstone at >25%

In the downhill direction, it's all doable if you have the skills and are comfortable with your butt off the back and your chest on the saddle. Uphill, it's a great trail to retest your max heart rate. Be aware that going uphill will likely entail several hike-a-bike sections.

Love this trail, it's a roller coaster going from flat to kinda down to hold the f&*#$ on. It's certainly doable, no drops or jumps, but be on your game and comfortable with situations where you just cannot stop, you're better off rolling than trying to bail. May 2, 2017
