This was a varied, fun, and techie out-n-back. As an intermediate plus rider, North Backbone was a Sunday cruz of 30 minutes out and 25 minutes back. The mid-section provides advanced moves, and if you miss you will leave a little blood, I got close a few times! Will need to ride a few times to know what is coming.
Overall, great trail that changes up the S-Mountain experience. Huge views of the Ark Valley and 14ers, so even if you need to walk some areas worth the ride! For the advanced rider, this is a power ride; intermediate side, this trail will push you and make you better.
