Don't be fooled by the Start and end points noted on the trail map. This absolutely should be ridden from south to north. There are two distinct sections to this trail - the wrap around the side of a mtn which has a slight climb to mostly flat then the straight away locals have coined Permagrin. Permagrin segment is a series of fun washes skirting the side of the mountain that resemble a roller coaster.

 When I rode this trail there was a sign which said the name is Perma Grin - Is this the same trail? Anyone know?

 This trail was named by the trail builder. Locals have renamed a portion Permagrin. So it is signed Benchmark for the southern section and Permagrin for the northern section.
