A great rolling trail whether climbing or descending. Best trail to access MERA's best enduro and black diamond trails.

Has potential to be a great trail. The lower section still needs to be reworked and buffed out. The upper section is awesome. A great alternate to gain elevation without climbing Mount Emily road. May 7, 2018
Made my first ascent of this trail in early November after a week of rain. The trail had soaked it all in w/o becoming muddy. Trail is fun and flowy w/ really cool turns up top and some ski jumps down below (takeoffs to slight downhill that are fun at speed, one after another). Starting from Owsley and climbing MERA loop to Slammer then coming down Slammer to Upper Hotshot and back to the trailhead makes for a really fun climb of around 1200 feet followed by a pretty fast descent. Good stuff all around. Nov 9, 2018
