Description

This trail runs along the western edge of the Ute Valley Loop. It gently ascends a half mile through several areas of technical slick-rock ridges.

There exist several lines for riders of different skill levels to go up these obstacles. At the top, Nachos--1/3 mile technical connector (aka Hummingbird Trail), a black diamond trail, turns off to the east. The trail descends from here in another interesting technical run for a few hundred feet.

The trail then turns eastward and descends rapidly into the center of the park towards Ute South Ridge Doubletrack.
