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

Overview

Features: -none-

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
