Massive trail with monster climbs that burn into super fast descents(30+ mph) No matter what you will climb for miles, when you get up high it will level off to nice single track. There are some very technical black diamond sections. Also there is a trail call Blackjack that is a double black diamond. This trail is not recommended unless you are an advance rider with the proper equipment.

Not sure how the trails are rated in AllTrails but usually not quite accurate. Hard isn’t what I would call these trails. Sure you can get miles in if you want. And you there are climbs but, difficult...no.
Lots of fun and the views are awesome. I recommend!!!!

This trail is the hardest I’ve been on this year. If you decided to do all 18+ Miles. Make sure to carry enough water. I had 2.7 liters with me for 8 hours. Not a lot of shade through out the trail. I was fortunate enough to have clouds blocking the sun pretty much all day. However, when you have clouds you have rain...

My only gripe would have to be all the bicycles that are on this trail. So if you have a mountain bike. Definitely check this place out. I only saw one family of three through out the entire trail hiking.

Make sure to get the map that looks homemade.
As for the trail awesome sights everywhere. This trail is one that I can brag about.

Great climb up with a fabulously rewarding ride down on the classic loop. Early morning ride avoided traffic and heat. Rewarded ourselves with burgers and beer at Zoka's

Variety of trails, most encompass screamer climbs with a great pay off. Blackjack trail is insane. Be ready for a workout!
