Great trail, definitely makes it better if you have a dropper post to help with the short climb at the end. Fun to climb ratio is good

Trail is great! I headed south down fireman’s trail to get back to the top and it was treacherous. Make sure to follow what the description says and go NORTH to climb back up!

Very fun flowy train
I would rate this trail as a blue and not so much of a black diamond

Best trail at Trexler, just be ready to earn your climb back (unless you parked at the bottom).

Don't use the trailforks app to try to navigate this. Looks like the trail has been re-routed in several places since this map was accurate. Kept thinking we had missed a turn then doubled back to see what looked to have been a trail several years ago.

This doesn't match the current trail. Up north it seems okay, but then it diverges. Trying to follow the trail with the trailforks app you get to a place where the trail looks like it used to continue, but is really overgrown. Looks like the trail was re-routed without this map being updated. Made following the trails challenging.
