Wet clay, which sticks to your wheels and causes a jam every rotation. Do not do this trail within a few days after it’s rained!

Rocky, loose, dry, dusty. Definite black diamond. Even states this on the trail sign! Not intermediate.

Very overgrown, washed out, and honestly not a good way to route your rides. Unless you for some reason specifically want to ride this trail, you should avoid it as either a climb or a descnet
