       Says you can ride it both ways but you really can’t ride up this.

       Agreed...I couldnt ride up this...worth the hike a bike though, this trail is rad. It seems fairly new as there was a good bit of loam when I rode it.
      Lots of steep techy chunk and a few jumps at the bottom

      Tons of fun!
