I would definitely not classify as a Black. It's a very flowy XC trail with a couple short punchy climbs and maybe a couple Blue+ technical bits.

Not sure why the elevation profile for this trail shows it is that high...my Garmin recorded only about 500ft of elevation gain.
Also, trail is marked as about an 8 mile loop, but Garmin and Strava both recorded it under 7...
This definitely needs to be updated on Trailforks, but overall a great trail!
