      Road from Greenline Tie down. Based on conditions on Greenline Tie I'd guess there was snow on the upper part of the trail.

       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.

       This is in no way a black Diamond. Go ride the black diamonds at north slope and you’ll see what a black Diamond is. Honestly nothing on this trail is even that challenging. This is a pretty mediocre trail overall with a handful of fun technical sections. Little larch is a far superior trail.

       Definitely wouldn’t call this a mediocre trail. It’s a classic pnw XC trail that feels like you’re descending a mountain. Some lame climbing sections but lots of fun, fast downhills. Must ride if you’re shuttling. Along side little larch

       Ok so maybe calling this trail mediocre was a bit unfair. This trail is quite decent and honestly with the length it’s actually a nice choice if you’re feeling something on the more long and mellow side. Even just one run down this makes for a fun day on a bike. If it wasn’t shuttle accessed it would be a different story though.
