      Bit of ice at the top but rode really well; roots were 100% dry, no slippage on my bald tires.

       On the other app I use it says This is a black diamond and it is defiantly a black diamond very very very rough and a lot of roots and hard obstacles

       I would definitely call this a blue intermediate trail not a black diamond. There are roots and drops but the largest drop is maybe 15 inches and at the speed the trail provides it requires very minimal effort of the rider to compensate for the drop. I guess technically some of the drops are unavoidable but they are in the minority and are small.

       I would say this trail is rated properly. I took a dated 2016 Trek EX8 29er down it and it was more than enough bike for this sometimes fast and flowery trail with some mild to moderate rock and root obstacles and maybe even a garden or two. The drops are small and don't sneak up on you. A couple of the switchbacks are tight if you come in too hot, but again, nothing you don't see coming.

       Not a black diamond i don't care what anyone says about that. It's a true blue and perfect for those trying to get more comfortable mtn biking. I'd say more classic than a flow trail but there's some fun berms and flowy sections. Do yourself a favor and ride the work roads or climb up to it...we came in awkwardly and rode up the last section to the top which was semi brutal.

       I think this is a challenging intermediate level course. A few pretty steep sections and tons of roots and small features to get a little air on. Rode this on our hardtails yesterday and had some root fatigue by the end for sure. Would be less challenging on a full-squish bike.
