       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.

       Rode this again today, good times! Not sure why this was downgraded black to blue.
