Description

This is one of the best trails KC has to offer. It can be ridden either direction and is very technically difficult. Don't let the elevation gain fool you as the place is literally littered with rock ledges, steep ups, roots, slick rock, and drops. It's a total body workout and when combined with some of the other technical trails in this park you'll get quite the punishing ride.

An easy section of this tough trail. There are MANY opportunities to play ON the rocks!

Lots of technical sections but they are actually broken up by some flat. Definitely a grind.

It was fun I couldn't imagine doing this trail on a hardtail. I got my damn teeth rattled good and hard that's for sure. 6.4mi
