Tight, twisty, overgrown - basically one LONG rock garden. Elevation profile shows it as all DH, but it sure didn’t feel like it. 0.6mi

This trail is a technical workout. The scrub oak can definitely scratch your frame, and the rocks will grab at your crank arms. Recommend full finger gloves to save the oak trees from scratching at your knuckles. I have never seen another MTB or hiker on this trail, it is tough. Recommend for riders looking for a technical challenge, who don't mind short hike in a couple spots Aug 19, 2017

Its a really hard ride right now with the scrub oak and other growth hiding the trail and features. After the scrub leaves are gone in the fall will be a great ride again. Aug 19, 2017

I'm impressed by riders who are only challenged by the scrub oak on this trail. I can handle scratches on my arms and legs, but the technical features require trial skills at times. Glad such trails exist to keep one humble! Sep 7, 2017
