9 miles of uphill. Well, the last bit is straight downhill. So, 7 mules of a graduated uphill with nice views of the Rockies. The last couple miles is rolling up and down before you take a plunge with twists and turns. Definitely worth the ride. We took our time and rode for about 3 hours. We would rate this moderate and the downhill a bit more than moderate.
