Update

An absolutely brutal trail most riders will find difficult if not impossible in several sections.

Overview

Description

This trail is one of the few where the double black diamond is really earned. The route is difficult either way you go, and the off-camber rocks make sections of this trail extremely difficult if not flat out impossible. While I always like a good challenge, there are several parts of this trail may turn you away from this trail as a go-to ride.

I was told by locals that you shouldn't ride during the snake season as they like to bake on the rocks and they can be out and about.

This is a good practice spot for some of our local backcountry trails. This is a trail that will take most a while to master(most myself included will still have to walk some), but should help to improve your technical skills. Sessioning sections helped me a lot. Faith and momentum are your friends on this trail. Nov 10, 2015
