Mix of dirt and rock face single track. Submerged in the trees, you're into the "Dark Zone" for a few minutes. There's one pretty steep 10ish pedal strokes rock face outcrop at about the half-way point to get over that looks like wall, but ridable if you grunt it out. Fun section that used to be an up on the way out and a down on the way back. It's now primarily an up since the addition of Roller Coaster, which is primarily down. You can ride either in either direction. Roller Coaster is more challenging.
