       this trail is a black diamond because it is in such poor condition and overgrown and rutted that it is actually pretty difficult to go down. Do not recommend. Terrible trail especially if your looking for downhill

       Yes, it's definitely black diamond, for more advanced riders who can navigate ruts, and steep tight rocky switchbacks. A good challenge not to step off your bike.
