This trail is accurately rated “hard.” You start with a 14ish mile, steeeeeep in places, climb up a gravel to dirt road. It is hard. As you ascend, the views are absolutely stunning. I recommend taking your shoes off to cross the pretty little creek! By the time we got to the trail, we were totally exhausted. I am a strong intermediate rider and I was ready to throw my bike off the mountain! The 5 mile DH has sections that are fast, fun, and flowy and more amazing views. There are also sections that are the hardest and most technical that I know of. A lot of the DH was treacherous and very hard! Long travel bikes and years of experience are recommended. Overall, this trail could possibly be fun if there were a shuttle up.
