This is a cross country trail not a downhill trail. There's a couple of rocky drops at the beginning, middle is flowy and fun through the forest, and the end is cross country climbing. It's an okay trail, but I'm used to enduro and downhill trails though.

This site says, “No e-bikes.” There are no signs on site that restrict e-bikes (class 1 pedal assist).
Fun downhill with a pretty lookout point midway.

Don’t go up. It’s sucks. Down could be fun though but I haven’t tried.

Amazeballs. One of the best flow trails I've ever ridden. Fast and playful with small rollers.

Wouldn’t recommend it. Cassidy is a fun climb with some good techy sections so just go with that
