Trail Description
About this trail
Short but challenging trail that has great hardpack singletrack mixed with a technical slickrock rim traverse to a incredible singletrack finish with an option to finish out on the extreme Chutes & Ladders run. Very scenic and very fun. PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL. It's very narrow and very fragile just off the edges of the trail.

Review: Great ride. Some intensely technical rock hopping stuff like Moab, bit of slickrock (different from Moab!), some exciting exposure, panoramic views up top, and some faster dirt track.

Review: Of the Vernal trails, this was a unique and stunning trail. Instead of the feeling of riding on the desert floor, I often felt down in the desert. When you ride it you will understand.

Be prepared, a lot of quick power shoot climbs, 10-15 second bursts, along with one gut-wrenching climb up the slick rock. Also, when you cruz down the spine, be aware of the softer bottom area, so you don't skid out like the numerous others. You will see the warning sign, so don't ignore it! The bottom caught me by surprise.

I was breathing hard in some spots due to my early season lack of fitness, and the slick rock climb. Can't wait to get another crack it this one again since I know the trail. Also, need to pay attention to stay on trail.

I rode this CCW starting at the West end (at the Jazz TH pull-out), pretty sure this was the requested direction.

Review: Excellent trail with a nice variety of narrow singletrack and a little slickrock and a few techy sections thrown in for good nature. This is a great addition to Jazz for a longer loop.

Review: Many locals have been riding this trail clockwise. It is definitely worth a ride, especially since the BLM has upgraded a few of the sections to improve the experience
