This is mainly a 4 wheel drive trail. We were the only mountain bikers on the trail. Saw maybe 4-6 jeeps on the whole ride. It is pretty steep near the trail head with some technical rocky parts. The rest of the trail was fun. We ran into a lot of sand when we went which slowed us down. Way worth the view at the overlook however. Make sure to start at elephant hill and turn right at forks on the way out.
