This trail is a very challenging one due to the rocking climbs and descents. The trail makes a loop and you will come back down the same way you came up. There are off road vehicles that run this route too so keep an eye out. You can get to a small lake on the back side of the loop if you'd like. The trail Y's off about 2/3 of the way down. Left takes you back to the start of the loop and right will take you down to the lake.

Review: I would say this is more so Intermediate-Advanced (Blue/Black) due to some of the technical pieces up and downhill. It's a good ride on the way down, assuming your going counter clockwise. There is also a bit of sand on about a 1/3 of the 1st CCW half that you have to push thru. I would have given this a 4 instead of 3 but the sand in parts of the ride was annoying. ** Make sure you stay off the turn out to Carnage, it is only .5mi long but you'll find yourself walking the bike thru most of it. It has 5 & 6ft drops all over the place and close together, it's made for serious 4x4 trucks.

Review: I rode my bike following a buddy in his Jeep. The road was pretty rocky making the uphill challenging and the downhill awesome. We went through a dried up stream bed, which was really sandy and hard to bike in. All in all it was a great ride tho and I had tons of fun!
