       I’m a roadie just starting MTB. Did this from south to north. There are log steps you need to ride over but staying to the left edge on each minimizes the differential so I could avoid hike a bike. Short section near the top out of saddle for the last log - was fun! I think this is a fairly easy blue trail IMO.

       Short section but the most fun in the park

       Going south to north (opposite of why Trailforks suggests) this is an excellent moderately technical climb. This is a really fun trail if you are looking to build climbing skills as there’s nothing extreme on it, but consistently testing your timing and ability to pace yourself. I’d argue this is the best trail in the park, along with the west section, regardless of which way you go.
