This trail is best ridden CCW. The east end of the trail used to have some really steep hike-a-bike sections, but recent work as been done to smooth out and lessen the grade. It is still pretty unrelenting in spots on the climbs, but the singletrack is buff. There is a good climb right in the middle as well, but again, the climbing when done from east to west is pretty smooth and easy. The downhill sections are fast and have some rooty rocky sections, right as you drop from the top of the sinkhole.

The furthest western section has also been rerouted, taking through the trees and makes for a shorter loop. This is the trail with the cow sculls on top of 2 poles.
