State recreation areas:
Except for public roadways, class 2 or 3 e-bikes are not allowed. Class 1 e-bikes may be designated for use only on trails and controlled-access roads that already allow traditional (non-electric) bicycles

Some switchbacks, some rocky sections. Lots of sun, decent areas of shade. Fairly popular with hikers, and it's almost all singletrack so be careful. Ran into a few snakes in my visits along this trail, so keep your eyes peeled in the summer. Kind of a difficult blue trail, imo.

Annadel doesn't have many beginner-friendly trails (for true beginners.) Even this trail, while very mild for Annadel, has some minor sections that aren't great for someone nervous about their first ride. This is not a challenging trail, one of the easiest in the park.

This trail was beautiful, but more technical than your normal blue!

Necessary to climb if you wanna do a bigger ride at annadel but it is definitely a bit of a grind.

I would not call this trail "downhill primarily" - it is a popular climb as well as descent.

Conditions were good yesterday. There has been some recent work done toward the top. The section just below the picnic tables st Marsh has been smoothed out quite a bit and the dip at the sharp left immediately before Marsh is filled in.
