Adequate parking at trailhead. Numerous switchbacks on a wicked initial incline. Great view through the trees from the left trail that goes to the top. Don't let the nasty rocky trail down from the peak deter you, as the rest of the downhill is one of the most thrilling around. A rollercoaster effect like no other with banking turns and rolling downhills. Be aware of hikers on the fast turns! The paved uphill (to the left of the trail base) back is a welcome sight, as the very thought of returning back the way you came is a daunting idea.

Great time! Bring strong legs.

It’s really a bike trail... loved it for hiking but you need to watch for bikes coming down. They were very courteous and warned us they were heading our way. It was a pretty place.

Great trail, single track, there are a few things that could be improved like there are some really slippery rocks that go halfway out into the trail

Great Trail!!! Well worth it if you can clear out a night and camp at the top.

It is a difficult trail that starts with a series of switchback climbs. Once at the top you have a fast a steep downhill. Very exciting!
