This rating system does not describe difficulty level. It only identifies obstacles and indicates if a support rider is needed. For other information, please consult TrailForks, this trail blog and trail videos.
When traveling and riding alone, we believe the pertinent information indicates if you can ride a trail confidently on your own or not. Of course, this usually means sticking to the fire roads and double track and everyone would prefer to ride the best trails an area has to offer, but we feel strongly that it is more important to ride without anxiety than take a chance. When riding with a partner, we believe the most important question that needs answering is: Do obstacles exist that are deal breakers? This rating system, combined with video, provides the necessary information. This blog provides further details about staging, facilities, trailheads and things to look out for.
