Even going the downhill on this trail is pretty crappy.
The terrain is very steep, so the trail is cut as long switchbacks.

While the terrain between the corners is pretty fun, each corner is almost too sharp to make on a bike.
Uphill, you'd have to be a rockstar to make these corners without sliding out.

Downhill it's just a huge bummer, since you have fun on the straightaways, then have to almost stop and do a little endo to get around the crappy switchbacks.

The lower section is mostly across the hill and doesn't have these problems, so that part was fun.
I'd avoid the trail for the most part.
