A great single track ride with almost all decent.
Blow Hard for me is one of my favorite shuttle trails in Brian Head.
It starts off a bit steeper at the top, and features a wide variety of terrain, including smaller steep rock drops at the top, rock gardens, smooth flowy trails, etc. There are some B-lines, and anything to challenging can be bypassed by simply dismounting and walking it.
For those riders with a little more experience, it is one of those trails that allows you to ride as fast you can go!
Note anytime you come to a gate, open the gate and enter then lock it again behind you.
Most people shuttle it, but a few serious grinders will ride back to the top.
I assure you if you attempt this you better be in excellent shape.
Try combining Blow Hard with C-Trail, for an epic adventure.
