 Lots of climbing for a DH trail. Worth riding once just to see it, but not an amazing trail. I'd rather ride the DH Climbing Trail as an out an back.

 Have to agree with vikb. Not a DH trail at all. Should really be renamed.

 Ride the climb trail out and back. The ‘so-called’ downhill trail is not worth the ride.
