This trail absolutely is a double diamond, by grading definition. Massive props to the detailed description and great overall job with building and mapping in this area.

It's a bit of a tradition to sandbag on Cape Ann Smile

This is one of the prototypical double diamond trails in Massachusetts. Very challenging while also being very enjoyable. Should be on every one’s “top tech” list. Bravo to the builders.
