Lots of switchbacks, some pretty tight. One section on the face takes you through some cool rock formations, but mostly just easy grinding climb. The back side of the loop is the shady side which holds mud longer and provides some fun fast and flowing downhill through the trees.

You will know you are at the top, because you can see both sides of the 2 valleys, and there are some really difficult rocky sections, but they are short. Once you drop down the backside heading counter clockwise expect miles of fast flowing smooth trail through the aspens, with a mix of Stinging Nettle and Mint leaves so thick you can smell them.

 Really enjoyed the ride, but I would suggest this be directional, CCW. The switchbacks are way too tight for the higher speeds the backside commands. Perhaps it was designed this way for climbs either way but flow turns could have better planned.

 Quite a few trees down on the backside.
