Review: Hard to add anything besides what was said in a description for this trail. It's a rocky trail that gets slippery when wet. It's fun in both directions if you know how to handle a 3-mile long rock garden. And I love it

Review: I usually ride this one from N to S. Going this way, it starts with a really crappy, loose climb for 1/4 mile or so. Just when you're really hating it, you see the top.

The rest of the trail is slightly uphill, with some fun techy climbs, and rock gardens.
All of them are rideable if you have good skills. It's pretty fun from S to N too, but it takes the edge off a bit.

Review: This is an excellent trail if you're a serious rock hound. While it's more fun as a descent than a climb, it makes a better uphill leg as the other trails it connects to (Otero Canyon and Birdhouse Ridge) are even better downhills. It's worth repeated riding as you can measure your improvement in how many obstacles you can clear without stopping for breath. The rocks can be challenging, but are doable--the tougher parts are rutted in addition to being rocky.
