This steep and narrow, but consistent ramp descends into the canyon.

Description

Trail #11 is steep and narrow, but friendly. Basically, it is a gravelly ramp that angles down along the west canyon side at a remarkably steady angle.

While the two trails are somewhat parallel, there is no comparison with the brutal upper third of Copper Canyon Trail #10. #10 actually has a smaller average grade, but that's because it has a long gentle section.

Most intermediate riders will be able to ride Trail #11 downhill with only occasional dabs. There are a few rocky sections and small steps but only one gentle switchback.

Crossing the stream bed, the trail then alternates from the dry water bed to along the east hillside.

While shown as a downhill, the trail could also be ridden as an up-and-back. Most of the grades are rideable with plenty of breaks to catch your breath.
