Description

This trail rolls up and down, but never too steeply or for very long. Compared to other trails in the area, it's a little bit rockier with a few more roots, but still not much. There are some fun sections of flat granite that you can ride right over. The descents are fast and flowing, and not very steep, so you can go quite fast.

Always fun. Lots of opportunities for speed and corners to rip.

This was awesome - like Moab in spots. Rode Charlie's cut off then past the turn and hand to ride back up but worth it
