Very nice technical area added recently. Both the South and North are very fun if you enjoy going over, down and through some big rocks. Every extreme technical area has a nice bypass for riders not wanting the full monty. There are also other lines not seen on the first few passes.

There are some potential very tough uphill segments, but everything is walkable up and down and there is nothing that will jump out and surprise you with danger. If in doubt, get off, walk the section and look for your line. All in all, this is EXACTLY what this trail system needed.

 Very fun technical stuff. Ride it south to north from the divide trail. The signage is confusing as hell so it takes some trial and error to find a route. The trail disappears altogether when it crosses the granite slabs. I had to get off my bike and study lines quite a bit, which is cool by me.
