Don't let the distance fool you. This is a very tough ride. There are lots of drops, switchbacks, and plenty of exposure tot keep you on your toes. Plus about half-way into the ride there is a fairly long hike a bike section. That all being said this trail is a blast and has everything an All-Mountain rider could ask for. Most link a few of the other trails above or below for an awesome day of shuttling.

trail in good condition. If you ride the road up, don't get to the trail from the first parking lot that says Green Mountain/Bug Springs...

Some downed trees. One huge tree pulled out of the ground destroying the near by trail. Rocky as always, good ride for early season.

Minor erosion on trail after the monsoons. Other than that, the trail is in good shape.
