Need to Know

Hueso is no joke, if you're not comfortable with tall, steep, and sustained slabs you won't enjoy this trail. Even if you are, you may find yourself awkwardly scrambling down some of the biggest sections.

Description

Cutoff from the Access Road for a short rooty pedal or push to the trail's drop-in. The main line on the first slab runs along the ridgeline before cutting down to the right. The grip is good so you'll be able to keep your speed in check with proper braking. There are a few rolls within the descent with the final one having a ride-around to the right if things look too dicey (you should probably scout things out for your first time and make that call ahead of time).

Continuing on a series of choose-your-own-adventure slabs and lines run along the large remains of some adjacent wood features. Ahead, a small bridge rises onto the next slab for the trail's main attraction. This giant slab will take riders down a white-knuckle descent that once started doesn't end till you reach the bottom far below. The traction is good but the commitment is pretty high and the wood bridge partway down further complicates things by changing the terrain in the middle. Make it through the rough exit and you'll probably want a break to catch your breath and let your heart rate settle.

Follow a short climb for more slabby goodness. The next sequence is quite a bit smaller and sports some fun run-outs. The fifth of these slabs ends with a loose and off-camber corner that's ready to catch you off guard. Make it through all of that and you just have one more tiny, but punchy roll, and a bridge at the exit.
