Description

Lower your saddle - it's steep, loose, rocky and rutted in parts, but loads of fun.

The trail starts at the junctions with the Backbone Trail - Will Rogers to Temescal Ridge, where you'll turn onto this section and prepare for a wild ride. Riders drop 600 feet in just over half a mile, making this trail a spicy and fun bit of riding.

At the end, catch your breath on either the Sullivan Fireroad Climb to Sullivan Canyon or the Nicholas Cage trail.

A little over grown but still rideable. Rutted and lose but fun.

This trail isn't open to bicycles, let alone e-bikes. We've been working for years to gain legal access to it, and it's slated for a major re-route.

Some steep sections with tight switchbacks.
