This is one of the sweetest downhills around. Great switchbacks and nice flow. Unless you have superhuman leg strength, shuttles are the best way to get more than a couple runs.

Review: Really fun trail, good to climb and descend. There are just a couple sections that are extremely bony and feel like they'll rattle your fingers off. Some work on select sections would make this back into a 5-star trail for sure.

Similar Trail: Sherwood Forest (marked as 'mineral site trail') in the Echo Lake network

Review: Awesome down hill! But you pay the piper to get to the top of this great descent. 2 miles of granny gearing to the top and you're almost spent. But what goes up must come down! Great trail!

Review: great,great trail to bomb down over and over again !!!! riding back up though every time makes for a long tiring day, BUT is very doable..definitely worth the slog back to the top..you can combine this with trails that go over to cranmore mtn.and to black cap (which has AMAZING views..) i can easily spend many hours here..well worth the trip for anyone that is wondering...park at top of hurricane mtn. road...be careful though if you ride road back up to top, i always stay on red tail trail and avoid the pavement !!!!!!!!!!

Similar Trail: only other compapable trails are on burke mtn.@kingdom trails.. NOTHING BEATS THOSE TRAILS......
