The top was great and overall better than i has remembered it, but bottom was getting many braking bumps. This is a really fun downhill, not super technical or crazy steep.

My least favorite part of 500watt rip. It is raw and natural which makes it feel great but the decent into grizzly is blown out.

I love this trail, it has that raw remote feeling I look for at Coe. There's no "Tech" at Coe, so sketchy climbs become the challenge.
Primitive and obviously rarely used, I like that. For Analog Bike, only descending from "Anza" would be enjoyable, the steeps on the "Grizzly" side are not climbable. E-bike, either direction. I've only climbed it from "Grizzly". A definite challenge to climb this trail on E-bike and not put a foot down. Steep, loose, switchbacks, so good.

Avoid riding up this unless you’re really strong or on an e-bike.

Trail Steer Ridge
Steep downhill, almost fire road. Not worth it unless you just want to get down fast.

The upper section is in great shape now. Don't miss it!

The marking of this road as not allowing e-bikes is incorrect.

There's almost a dozen riverbed crossings. This is great if you want to get wet, not so great if you don't! Only 1 ir 2 have water in the dry months but all will be full when it's raining.

Like @deln78 says, hard to see that it's a trail at all from Anza (or in reverse). So many leaves and pine needles. The first 1000' you don't know it's a trail until crossing a rock bed. To the top of the climb there are a few turns where you can lose the trail.

When the decent starts, it's hard to track the trail. Switch back when you see the water tub and keep a foot ready during the ravine switchbacks. They didn't seem like a good place to fall. I was super happy when the trail ended.

Gets really muddy after rains. Best to avoid in those circumstances.

From the Anza trail side, this trail looks like it's abandoned. Too much debris/disuse to be worth it.

The uppermost part from Steer Ridge Road is very steep, overgrown, and beat up by horse hoofs. I'd rate it black but not worth it. The rest down from there is awesome! Super fast.

Great trail to get rid of those pesky brake pads. Trail is fast and steep, but it just goes straight down and you're at the bottom in like 2 minutes feeling let down after you climbed 2 hrs to get to the top.

Go up this trail. It is a steep but doable climb, however, it would make a horrible descent, flat switchbacks the whole way. Go down Grapevine if you go up this trail!

A long varied climb from Coit Rd. with only a few difficult areas. Will be hot and dry in the summer but perfect otherwise.

Best CCW due to the rough, long and not so nice section coming down to the trailhead. All the rest of the trail is great with few great wet crossings and fun singletrack.
