Description

The stats speak for themselves - 7 mile, over 3300' of descent. Some of this trail will be in the realm of advanced skills and some categorized as advanced views and scenery.

I really loved this trail... enough to say that as of the date of this posting it is my favorite Brianhead shuttle trail. I laughed, I cried and I hung on for my life at times... and recognized when it was time to eject. There is about a mile of this trail that is quite steep... your butt will likely get intimate with your rear tire while skidding through the clutter of loose rock, washed out roots and sharp rock outcrops that bounce you 'round like a bobble head on crack. Yup... it was that good!

So, if you are not the type to enjoy that sort of thang, then parts of this trail will be disturbing to you.

On the flip side, the trail is filled with outstanding scenery - with majestic views of red rock cliffs, towering hoodoos and whispery wooded singletrack. Blowhard is MY go to trail in Brianhead!
