That rockwork wasn't built as part of the bike trail. This was a wagon trail from the 1860's and the rocks were put there back then to make the road up to the top of the mesa. Not much road left but the rocks stayed and made a perfect biking trail. A previous poster mentioned that this trail is a lot steeper and more technical than the camera shows. I'll second that! The rider made it look pretty easy. The sections in the film is the last mile of the trail. The previous 56 miles are similar to Gooseberry trails, with a little less pedaling, and is a blast also. Linking it from the Windmill on Gooseberry makes for a 15 mile, 4 hour ride that you'll forever remember.
