Ding: Add in a 6.7mi road climb and you get a trail which was meant to be shuttled. A lower quality 3.3mi, 25% singletrack ride would not even be listed on this site, and the overall rating takes a hit as a result.

Despite these shortcomings, the fact that this trail is so popular speaks to the adrenaline rush produced by this ride.

Strong climbers might try this as an OAB, at risk of collision on many steep, blind corners.

FR2101 is a 10% grade, so it is not a particularly easy climb, but is the only real option for those without a shuttle (or performance enhancing drugs).

The descent is wild, snaking around very steep hillside exposure. Good brakes might be useful.

The other big downhill rides in this area are Hardesty Tr3469 and Lawler Tr3473.

Nearby Larison Cr Tr3646 offers more moderate terrain for those not seeking to smoke their brake pads (too much).

Directions: SR58 to Kitson Springs Co. Rd., then go .5mi to FR21. Turn right and go .25mi to FR5852, turn right and go 4mi to the TH. View Larger Map. No Map?.
