This is a very fun trail with excellent views. Because this trail is rated as intermediate, I was caught off guard by the several hike-a-bike sections. But the rideable parts definitely live up to the intermediate rating.

Good trail. Mostly ridable with some tech sections. Anyone who can clean the entrance is my hero.
