This trail can be ridden in either direction, both are fun and challenging. Either climb the switchbacks first and end with a steep and techy descent, or climb the steep part first and descend the switchbacks after. Climbing the steep section is possible, but you need to be a very skilled climber. You can loop this using the Quail Creek Overlook access road, or do an out n back. The entire trail is cleanable by bike, however it is consistently very technical. Enjoy.

       This trail is pretty lame. Super tight and twisty with a few bike a bike sections unless your are a solid trials rider. Very little fun to be had here and wouldn’t really recommend it.

       Fun trail with constant tech challenges. Hard to follow in a few places.

       To counter the 1st comment, this trail is awesome. If you don't like/can't ride tricky tech than go ride Jem or sumpin.

       Also response to the first comment, I didn’t like any of these trails when I was new to MTB, but now I find them fun and challenging with progressed skills and a good bike.

       Just rode this trail counterclockwise today
      so I climbed the majority of it and had a short downhill with a few drops at the end of the trail - super fun technical riding and if you like challenging climbs then I highly recommend but advanced intermediate and above
      will suffice
      I did walk down one drop but rode the others

       What a blast. Did an out and back of Cub Scout Upper -> Boy Scout -> Varsity Scout -> Adventure Scout. Tough and awesome technical climbing. This is what an expert level trail looks and feels like. If you've got great skills AND fitness it all comes together. If they made the switchbacks flow more with some rock berms this thing would be world class. Still 5 stars of fun.
