Chamisoso is an interesting trail that pops off of Powerline, and is definitely a better way to climb, as Powerline gets crazy steep and rocky further on, and can be a decent (if scary) descent, but is not a fun climb.
Chami is, however. The beginning will take you through a mellow meadow section for a nice warm-up. You'll run into an intersection at the Coyote-Chamisoso link, and at this point stay to the right. Then it's a bit more meadowy warm-up before you start hitting the more technical, rocky section of the trail. Nothing too bad as far as difficulty, but loose rocks/dirt combined with steepish sections can be challenging. Good up or down.

       In better shape the Delberts but still has a lot of baby beads. Wouldn’t want to ride in oppposite uphill direction.

       We rode it backwards and it wasn't too bad at the beginning. The uphill was rough. Trail wasn't as bad as Delbert's but still torn up from dirt bikes. Maybe I'm just use to MTB single-track. But this was still rough. It was our first time riding that trail system and I don't think we will go back.

       Most of the stuff in the east mountains is very 'rough' and loose. You have to find your routes that end in some pay off, otherwise it can just feel like a slow going chunk fest. If you went up this trail, a good compliment is then going down coyote. A counterclockwise loop is the fun way. The Otero area offers a little more pay off for the work. The cedro area is more difficult to string together a cohesive ride.

       I disagree. I can see where you are coming from but I feel any of the downhills are rewarding for any of the climbs you do. I definitely agree about Otero, though. The DH's over there rip!
