Rock, roots, more rocks, more roots. Slow tech, steep tight switchbacks, some too tight. Keep your eyes up and try the up and over the rocks lines as many of the hiker paths around the rocks are too tight for pedals and derailleurs.

I recommend setting your air pressure low and flat pedals.

The uphill in the middle of the decent is a hike a bike.

       All mountain test piece. Steeps, loose, fast singletrack, techy rock gardens. Bring all your skills.

      Approach from West trails. Don't climb up this.

       Best loop is to park at the bottom of this and pedal up the road (easy) to Glen Haven. Climb trail from Glen Haven.

       Just did my first ride of this and had a blast. Rode up from Glenhaven. Climb is technical from start to finish but mostly all ridable. Loose dirt and rocks can make traction tough at times. The decent was quite the challenge the whole way and while there were a couple sections that I didn't clear I think it's all doable on a modern trail bike.
