       I climbed this trail, which was long and a good pitch, but the whole time I was wishing I had planned it as a descent.

       If you were riding Mustang Sally as a loop, this is the route you want to take up, working in a counter clockwise fashion. Yes, it is longer, however, coming up from the other direction will be an exercise in anaerobic intervals with short periods to bring your heart rate back down :-). Having ridden it both ways on more than one occasion, those that I have ridden with all agree that coming up the eastern segment is a more pleasurable direction. That being said, it all depends on what you’re looking for :-).
