this is definitely more of a green-rated “trail”.

Completely disagree. Green should be a safely rideable by a beginner and Old Springs has all sorts of features which are mellow at low speed for an experienced rider, but are more than what a total novice is comfortable riding.

Doable on a gravel bike too in both directions. Quite a few annoying shallow steps on the lower 3rd of the trial, otherwise pretty smooth dirt.
