In very rough shape, very little maintenance in the past few years. Brutal going down, would be miserable going up. Stay on Broken Spade/Iko

Great trail! Like a straight pump track, it is a joy to flow along this trail.

Closer to doubletrack than singletrack. Wouldn’t recommend as a way to access the fun stuff.

This trail is awesome! I had previously climbed Akima's Way to get to Razzmatazz but will in the future take D4 up to this trail because this trail was so much fun! Skinnies, rock rolls, rock drops, and a sweet boulder hip-ish thing.

I prefer to ride this the opposite way of most. Spruce Creek is is loose rocky descent and is a long, tough climb but Tipperary is an awesome descent. Much better than the Spruce Creek descent. One negative is that if ridden this way, make it the end of your ride. There's a long fire road commute back to town.
