Description

One of the most used trails at Aliso, this one twists and turns so many times down the face of this hill, you begin to wonder if it will ever stop.

The surface is packed dirt and is taken care of regularly, so it's pretty smooth and without large technical features. It is, however, steep. The bottom section is flat, so not counting that part, it's 12-14% through all those turns.

I've seen people climb this, but realistically... really? Unless you enjoy the confrontation, I'd suggest letting the overwhelming bulk of riders on this trail enjoy their downhill run. But there will always be those, so keep eyes down trail.

Fun flowy long trail. It seems well maintained with not many sections that was loose with dust.
