This trail effortlessly combines different terrains and experiences: from speeding through bermed turns to cruising along bench-cut trails with breathtaking views.
While the bottom of the trail has a gravel road and three cattle gates, this doesn't significantly detract from the overall experience. Recent updates have replaced these gates with cattle guards, enhancing the flow of the ride.
