Here's the thing. This trail has one short sector that is really steep and twisty. If you approach from La Corona, you will point straight down and have to deal with a couple really fun (technical) turns and rough patches. Once you get down to the creek, it's a pretty cool and easy ride, with some steps you will likely walk. If you go the other direction, you will push your bike up that steep sector. I can't see anyone able to ride up that. If you can, shout about it!

Access Info

If branches off of La Corona at one end, and is behind the ball fields on the other end.
