      Bunch of campers camping right on the trail on the first 400 meters or so, you'll have to navigate your way around tents, people and garbage.

       This is a great uphill battle for those who like to climb. It is certainly doable for most. Almost all of the trail can be pedaled with good health and a 30T front. There are a few small hills that got me to push a little. It makes for great tech-like practice in some switchbacks and log/rock/root obstacles. The downhill is really rewarding after the climb as well! I will definitely choose this "in woods climb" over riding a fire road up!

       Ride is very technical and a lot of climbing if going in from highway. Marked as a black ride and we’d concur with that.

       2019 update: If you ride this, I would highly recommend only descending it. We rode it uphill and 50-75% of the time we were hiking. Also note that trail signs are signifying that this is classified as a black diamond.

       This should be a directional al downhill trail. And most likely black like the sign on top says. Go up 57 and down this.
