      Agree with the others. I was on a gravel bike going down and started getting worried about the possibility of needing to ride back up which would've been nearly impossible with my gearing. Wouldn't recommend in either direction.

      This trail changes completely with an eBike. A difficult climb transforms to just a climb and at the slow pace of climbing you can see it covers some pretty nice ground.

      1 way very steep downhill with loose over hard so a bit sketchy. Long climb out on next mandatory section to make a loop so do it in cool temps because its an easy place to overheat

      Second the comment above. Made the mistake of “riding” (walking) most of it. Even coming down didn’t look like it would be fun. I’d just avoid this double track all together.

      You want to only go down this trail. It climbs 800 feet in just over a mile so you really can’t ride up it easily. It is a double track descent that has you saying “oh crap I hope there is an easier way up than this” all the way down.
