 The upper valley where this trail is run has so much potential. It feels wasted on this trail.

 Could not follow the descent portion of this trail via Trailforks, it ended up on steep dirt bike climbing tracks that got us down in about 10mins, what a crappy ending! Loved Upper Scenic climb though.
