Great trail, super popular and is barely a blue difficulty. You can really get some speed going down but be careful as many folks climb up to save time vs. the road

I find riding up this trail be really easy. But honestly, don't descend down this trail, it is really lame. Climb up this trail to greenslick, so you're getting what you deserve.
