Description

The Hurl Trail is the trail to test your climbing and descending abilities over rough terrain. There are no big drops, but a great many rocky sections.

This test piece can be done in either direction - if you're starting from the town of Blue Diamond climb, "Puke Hill" then turn right onto The Hurl. If you're starting from the Hwy 160 side, the climb is a bit easier. Either way the descent is memorably enjoyable.
