Riding in from the dam and heading towards Loveland Bay Road this trail starts off fun and flowy with one tricky little step up. Further down the trail it splits to the right (the left fork goes to Lower Deliverance which also ends on Loveland Bay Road). Immediately after this right junction there is an extremely difficult double black diamond climb - doable for the strongest riders, not for the rest of us mere mortals. The trail continues along the side of a rocky bluff with some exposure to the left, plenty wide enough if you don't clip a pedal but with some techy moments. At the end of the bluff is a steep rock roll to the left with an ugly exit (which has claimed many a rib in the wet) or a slightly easier but still challenging switchback to the right. Then more flowy single track takes you out to Loveland Bay Road where you can choose to continue with Stickman or Upper Deliverance. It's possible to ride this trail both directions but this direction is much more doable.
