Trail Overview

This is the most difficult trail in Rabbit Valley, Colorado. It is a technically challenging trail on a mix of sand, dirt, and slab rock. Going clockwise, it starts off easy on sand hills that crest, drop back down, and have big dips in between. Ride through tight, twisty turns under the red sandstone canyon. The beginning section is a level 3 difficulty with some moderate rock obstacles. There are a couple of bailouts in the beginning when the trail crosses dirt roads. The second half turns into a very challenging trail with several (15-20) tall rock-slab ledge obstacles that require technical skill, clutch, and throttle control. The obstacles are going both up and down, so it would be a challenge in either direction. The single track continues along a canyon rim with ledge exposure for part of it, then finally climbs back out to the dirt road.
