Went CCW and it was a good little workout trail. Some good flow towards the end but nothing too techy. There were a few descents on road/doubletrack that were followed by tech uphill so next time I'll try it CW

Really fun. I was much younger when it was first built, so now I take my ebike and ride it like I did back then.

The trail starts with an easy fire road climb. Then it's lots of roller coaster like sections and a few tight switchbacks. Fast and fun, but it's over quick.

This is a fairly steep fire road that's pretty miserable to climb out.

First time riding this area today. Beautiful. But I would suggest this route be ridden CCW. The climbs are on the dirt roads and the downs are on single track. There would be a lot of hike a bikes on the lower loop if ridden CW.

Lots of spots you need to get off and push your bike uphill, but the downhills and the views make this a trail you must check out even if only once

There are only a few trails in ASRA that I wouldn’t ride my monstercross/gravel bike on...and this is one of them.

Super fun on a trail bike though with some technical climbs. Great alternative to the connector.

Accidentally went CW after coming in from the connector trail, but that direction was fine. Walked several of the steeper parts. Avoid the plants. So many thorns...had to fix 2 flats.

Trail Squaw Flat
It is true that this trail is mainly used by dirt bikes. It feels very rugged with a ton of crude rock and baby heads, some steep and long climbs(that had me walking uphill at times) but this was insanely fun. The trail can be incredibly fast but it is a little technical due to its unpolished and rocky nature. I would almost say this was one of the fastest trails i have been on when combined with the next trail which is a forresty road or atv trail as well. You will have a signifigant climb to meet Confluence but i would say you have to do this at least once.
