Good variety of technical, smooth singletrack & gravel climbing; some technical, some smooth/twisty and some swoopy/jumpy downhill; with an eye toward doing a standard route to try out new bikes.

 This is a great route to get acquainted with Galbraith. The only issue is I wouldn't recommend riding back up Evo, just catch the road again.
