Description

This a recently built "progressive" trail with routes of varying difficulty. The trail has some natural drops and nice berms. Easier option lines are available at any feature, making the trail accessible by most riders out there.

The start of the trail can be a little difficult to find. It starts slightly northeast of the old concrete pads on top of Raiders Ridge.

From there it's fairly obvious. You'll go down through a section of slickrock with many options for route.

At the end you can either go down through the old rock quarry and take the Horse Gulch Road out, or follow the zip line trail, to a meadow and hit singletrack that spits you out at an open parking lot.

Choppy, chunky, and lots of grade changes. Kind of meh. Really hard to find speed on. Will appeal to fans of the old school jank.
