From a beginners perspective, this is a great way to build up climbing endurance. The trail is long but nice and easy. Ride back down if you're not ready for the switchbacks, 3 mile smile, and white rhino.

Totally doable to clean this on the uphill for intermediate riders. Newer riders may want to push a couple sections but overall it's not bad at all thanks to many switchbacks. Typically you will have the steeper sections around the corners and then it levels out until you get to the next turn.

Horrible gravel grind. The only way you will ever get me to ride this trail again is on a busy weekend to not cause problems to downhill riders. Just ride up WR and 3MS. That route is faster, way more enjoyable a climb, and only has a few steep sections that most intermediate riders can clean.

Awesome uphill for those just starting out to test your legs. The downhill is worth the trip up!

This is a great trail and gives you two options, either Techno trail or 3 mile smile after a zig zagging descent, but well worth your time and effort!!!

I would not put this as a green trail due to White Rhino in the middle, which is not a beginner hill. It is a great trail though!

Super easy run. Good for a quick ride when you're short on time.

The reward for BP is 3 Mile Smile! This trail is constant uphill with a slightly hairy downhill switchback at the end. If you've had enough, turn right for half of 3 mile smile or left for more uphill to top of 3MS.
