Description

Starting from Slim Shady Trail near Yavapai Vista trailhead, it's a steep, technical climb to the top of the mesa. Along the way, the trail snakes along the cliff edge until topping out with amazing views all around. The trip down the other side includes a long stretch of slickrock as well as several steep, highly technical chutes, until the trail ends at the Baldwin Loop and the west side of Cathedral Rock.

This trail includes steep technical riding, and very narrow singletrack with severe exposure. There are spots all along where a fall could result in severe injury or a long freefall. Be realistic about your skills and walk where necessary.

Pretty narrow, steep ledge on one side for a bit of it, but a fast, flowy downhill! 2.5mi
