Switchback trail, nice easy roots and rocks, but difficult switchbacks. Pro can train their cornering, intermediate riders their trail skills, beginners should take their time (beginners would rate it black). Its almost completely in the woods, can get dark easily.

Anyway this is a popular hiking path, please consider riding it off season (or in the morning or late afternoon), and don't use the switchback shortcuts.

      Trail is clear except for some branches (very few in head height, but at places where you would not go fast anyways, no danger). Forest path west...

       Gem of a trail. Many, many tight switchbacks. Lots of roots. Only a few high steps, most steps are not so bad and should be fine for advanced beginners. The upper part of the trail is a beauty; it goes through coniferous woods and thus has no tricky leafs in late autumn. But the rest is very nice as well.
