Smooth and flowing trail for 90%, with a few spots that are a bit bumpy and minor alternate lines. Trail is very exposed for most the ride and can hot and windy. As the trail has worn in more, the rocks and dips near the end will push some beginner riders skills. New section at top bypasses the dirt road and has a little bridge and a little rock field.

 What a fun series of trails! Not too steep, so minimal braking needed, just a nice ride. Easy access to fault line from the Grove Creek trailhead parking lot, about a half mile on the access road to get there.

 This was a blast! Fun flowy downhill without being too steep or technical. Maybe next time I'll take the jump.

 Amazing!! The jump is sturdy and not too big, perfect for me. The trail is very well-maintained.
