Located in a CA state recreation area; Considered a moderate to easy area; this is not a beginner's/first timer's trail for mountain biking due to how strenuous it is...with many unrelenting hills...many requiring the lowest gear to climb and a few lightly rocky areas. Otherwise, there are no surprises, though it may require a little attention to stay on the correct trail as it splits apart a number of times. There are arrowed markers if one goes in a counter-clockwise direction. The beginning and end of the trail share about .75 miles before the loop portion begins. Going right at the first major trail split at about 3/4 of a mile sends one almost 5 more miles before crossing the Foresthill RD to begin the return in the opposite direction of the loop on that (opposite) side of the road. Eventually, one crosses back across the paved Foresthill RD to ride up and around a hill to join back at the original split in the trail. It's all downhill from there to the trailhead.
