Flowing single track with a few tight hairpins on the climb or the downhill regardless of the direction ridden. Beats riding the road anyday

       Pretty rocky on the eastern side. Western side is less rocky but still has a couple chunky sections. Found this trail tougher than Lingle Valley, even though Lingle Valley is rated black (probably for the one steep downhill section).
