Description

This is arguably the most difficult and dangerous "trail" in the El Paso trail system (not counting roughrider canyon freeride park). The trail begins with an extremely steep descent down tire sized boulders down the ridge line. It then turns in to a steep rocky trail with some decent boulder drops. The end of the trail has three wooden ramps that will give you some good "air time".

This trail should only be attempted by expert downhill riders!

The rock slab creates a 25% grade which must be ridden very carefully - a piece of gravel can cause a painful crash.
