Blue trail due to very chunky rocks. Not steep, but technical

I would call this a blue trail as well. Due to how narrow and rocky some of the sections of this trail are. In my opinion, this trail is more difficult than many of the "blue" trails in this same area like Ponderosa or Caida Del Pino.

I’d call it an easier blue. Some narrow sections with some chunky rock.

The easiest "Blue" in the area. 95% of it is green, but there is one hairy rock garden that keeps it a blue. The rest is very fast, flowy and fun.

The lower portion of Ponderosa riding clockwise has been obliterated and you need to take the new trail Ponder-o-Face back. Too bad since this was the funnest, flowiest part.
