I ride this trail a lot. Two week ago I almost broke my left middle finger when I approached one of the rock gardens, normally I ride right through them without difficulty, but this time my front tire just didn't ride up over and I stopped so hard my hand jambed into the front brake lever. It also twisted the stem down about 4 inches. This trail is becoming my favorite beating out Wild Turkey as the best in the triad. I can't get enough of this trail, I rode it last Sunday and Thursday too. A couple things to watch out for is the 5 rock gardens that are natural (not hand laid out smooth) and you just can't carelessly fly though them, on most of these you have to tread and pick your way through or you may bust a rim or spokes. Next, be extra careful because the layout of the trail is almost a perfect balance of short climb and twisty flow allowing for super fast riding on super hard pack but most of the bermed up turns are kinda tight for the speed that can be carried. Also the last tight turn when riding clockwise isn't bermed, it's off camber, that's on the long main trail across the dirt road.
