Trail #4 has a true backcountry feel to it. There has been a substantial amount of work recently done, making this a worthy connection through the 7 Springs Recreation Area. While improved, it is still extremely challenging and best ridden from east to west in the general downhill direction. There is one major hike-a-bike section to navigate as well.

 Definitely agree with the comment to ride this east to west. Rode west > east via spur cross and that initial climb is brutal!
