    This trail is sweet!
    Very loose in a lot of places but feels like your going down hill most of the way. You can build up lots of speed easily. The downhill sections are fun and challenging for a newbie like me!

    This trail definitely has some excellent riding. I started on the intersection of Gold Camp and High Drive and rode through the tunnels at the end. The uphill is a good demanding heart pumper. The downhill is fast with some tight bobsled turns. My complaints about the trail are the lack of technical sections and the loose gravel created by dirt bikers. Overall it's a pretty sweet ride. It was also quite busy, but I really didn't have any problems with people on the trail.

    The scenery was absolutely outstanding, and the trail was fun, but the trail was so soft in sections, that I felt as if my front wheel should've been a ski! I had the opportunity to ride the trail again the next day, but opted to ride some other trails instead.

    Great single track with some loose gravel. Combined with Buckhorn or the Chutes trail, make a challenging, great afternoon.
