If you tried to bike up to the peak from this direction you would have about 50/50 of fun biking and steep hike-a-bike.

In my opinion, you shouldn't bike up to the summit from either direction. The trails just aren't sustainable, or functional as bike paths.
Some sections just head straight up a steep part of the mountain with no switchbacks. The trail, of course, has been reduced to loose dirt and rock from hikers and bikers not being able to control descents.

Because of the crap trail, many side trails have been worn in, making navigation difficult for people that don't know the trails well.
