95% hike-a-bike, & definitely not an intermediate trail for MTB...Fabio Wibmer would struggle to clean some of the uphill sections, & if you're going downhill on the south side it's still a solid black diamond (DH park black, not corner canyon black), double black in a few sections. After looping this around to Catherine Pass via SolBright Connector, I would just go up Catherine & then back down again, this trail's main redeeming quality on a bike is testing your hike-a-bike endurance, as well as your patience.

A fantastically technical descent. Entirely rideable, but ill-advised on weekends.

Rode up from Brighton to Alta and back. Its hard going getting up to the ridgeline of LCC, and on the way up, its probably at least 30% hike-a-bike. Coming down from the ridge to Brighton it is mostly rideable, there's a couple section of burly boulder fields that I would say are totally unrideable. Lots of hikers/young families on the lower section of the trail.

It is basically a hike. Loose, not interesting to ride but amazing views

Mostly a hiking trail but if you like a hard tech climb then go for it! Great views but crowded on the weekends
