Nice singletrack, but would be a hard climb. Quite sandy in a few places, and a few downed trees to watch out for. On the downhill there are some flowy sections, but they get interrupted by some really steep loose parts, and some intermittent uphill. Doesn't seem to see much traffic overall.

Sandy and a couple downed trees. I climbed it and would definitely recommend descending this trail instead.
