This trail is of two minds. 95% is green dirt road with a singletrack on the side that is, at best, boring. But then comes the Eagle Descent. 100 yards of black diamond (and in the winter icy sheet of death). Many people have died here. No, not really. But, its pretty ugly for a beginner. Riding up this short section is also a real gut punch. It used to be that people would try to pedal up it in their big ring. But, who has a big ring these days?
