 Nov 13th, Friday, unfortunately had to go left (cw) and did some monstrous climbing but the downhill, although shorter this way was a blast. Leaves on trail have to be 6 inches thick, so thank God no rocks underneath. Met a real nice lady worker for the trail blowing leaves off the entrance. She gave us some history and great directions to quickly get back to I40. If you can go on a day when you can climb right and come down ccw. More fun.

 Trail is great both ways but counter clockwise is better, so try to ride it on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday.
