Pretty tame trail with some optional rock rolls. I'd call this halfway between a green and a blue personally.

Some very minorly technical sections on the southern portion, but everything north of the bench is basically a hero trail now. Only technical features out that way involves avoiding horse crap.

Fun short trail. Some group, not quite sure who, has gone through and taken out all of the technical sections on the north end of the trail from below the benches. Widened it to a double track and laid down gravel.
