       I rode the trail counterclockwise and it was AWESOME! Seemed like I climbed for an eternity but it was a nice gradual climb and the trail was not too narrow. All the climbing paid off when the downhill began. There weren't many jumps or obstacles but with the speed you maintain bunnyhopping off of anything equates to some air time. Seemed like 15 to 20 minutes of straight downhill. I did have to watch for other bikers and hikers since it is a 2 direction trail, but I only had to slow down twice.

       This is a very nice trail. Was a little wet and had several downed trees blocking the trail. There were work crews out there clearing the trail. Would Li,e to ride it a second time if we had time while we were in the area.
