This was my 4th time mountain biking and will definitely suggest beginners to not try this trail. Tough climb to the top with very little shade. Difficult downhill with sizable drops, quick turns, and narrow passings. Check out my video for a full run thru https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=roNWUQwW74E&t=13s

This trail kicked my ass, but I still had fun. The climb is brutal because of all the rocks and sand. Very technical, ended up hiking the bike for a solid stretch. The downhill is dangerously fun with some quality drops. Had to bail to bike once. For sure coming back to improve

First to Review

The first few miles of this trail are an unrelenting steep climb with segments that are very technical. It deserves the expert ranking. There is very little shade for most of it so be sure to pack plenty of water. The downhill portion continued to be very technical with tight switchbacks, lots of narrow rocks drops, and loose sand covering most of it.
