Great ride to get your feet under you. First half is a slight rise while the latter is almost entirely downhill. There are a few technical spots on the second half worth keeping an eye out for but overall it's a pretty easy ride. Watch out for the small gaps between the trees.
Breathtaking views with varying types of foliage. Perfect for the fall, we walked through some light snow but the walk is just difficult enough that we stayed plenty warm. The first 1/3 or so is a fairly steep climb uphill but it mellows out and makes for an easy journey back.
