       Much harder than expected and quite challenging to ride east to west. Quite technical.

       This is the hardest blue trail I’ve ever ridden. Especially east to west; I had to push my bike.

       Yeah, that was the blackest blue I've ever ridden. However, I had a great time rolling those steps and re enforced stone descents back to parking. Great trail in its own right.

       This trail is exceptionally technical with massive uphill rock gardens, steep stairs, and not much fun for me as an intermediate rider

       Took the trail to go back to the parking lot after Espresso and I can safely say that this trail is significantly harder. Super steep rocky climbs lead to super steep rocky descents. The descents are really fun though.
