Description

Steep, rocky, tight switchbacks litter this grueling trail. Great technical downhill in both directions reward the rider that earned their way to the top.

Harder than I was expecting. Out of my league. Lot of techy parts right as you're turning on switchbacks, which throws me off.

Descending the south part is the most fun.
