|Five Miles of Hell
Five Miles of Hell is the real name of this trail. But the name is not a completely accurate description. There's really 7 miles of Hell (gnarly, gonzo, sick, and abusive technical riding on very rough rock) in this 20.6-mile loop. The Five Miles of Hell portion of this trail is extreme, trials-level technical. Peak altitude is 6700, bottom 6000, but with constant up-and-down riding, your climbing will be around 2000 vertical feet.
