       As an uphill ride, challenging but rideable for me, except for the occasional rock step ups, for 3/4 of trail. Then, you have to really enjoy popping up over 6-15" logs every 20-30 feet or so for a good stretch, while going uphill. (I do not, and was too tired to try after a bit, so I walked). This trail looks like it is used a lot by horses, so expect loose conditions and rocky areas with pebbles to baby heads strewn about. Imo, Fossil Canyon is more enjoyable up. And as I am not much of a DH'er, Fossil Canyon is preferable to me down too. But I could see going up Fossil Canyon and down Cat in the Hat for a little taste of DH. Views are spectacular all along the trail.

       Not a fun climbing trail. Moderately fun descent. Though water bars have made some sections less fun. Lots of baby head type sections.

       Terrible for climbing. Probably not a classic descent either.
