I would consider the top section more of a black than a blue.

This is a pretty gruelling loop, with a good mix of ups/downs, bermed corners, twisty singletrack, and techy rock gardens. Mix of conifer and deciduous. After crossing the powerline right of way, it becomes a more constant grade up.

This trail is an amazing XC trail when ridden up the mountain (I haven't ridden down). I agree with the black rating when riding up due to the technical rocky parts. Well done to the trail builders and volunteers who maintain it!

Heads up it’s a true cross-country trail and definitely at blue. It has great views of the surrounding area and brings you into different forested areas which is nice. Lower half is an up and down slog. One and done kinda deal. ????????

This is one of the best trails anywhere. Climbing in both directions, but easier if started from the top of the mountain. Technical rocky sections and flowing switchbacks through the trees. Great berms. If you are riding from the top, make sure to exit the trail by the lake campsites or you will go past the main parking area.
