Very nicely built trail, with consistent grade and great views. Some small rock features and discrete jumps exist, but this trail has been designed to be appealing for all ability levels -so don't expect any gnar. Great climb in either direction, though the northern section to Ash Canyon is usually the preferred downhill direction for most folks.

       You can make the ascent on mostly single track from the Kings side if you start from the corner of kings canyon road and Longview, then turn right on the dirt road.
