One of the most popular trails in Ojai. An out and back trail ride with an extremely fun long/challenging flowy decent. Being that you must climb to get to the top don't bring your DH bike but also I would not recommend a hard tail because there are a few rocky sections but not bad. This trail is very well made for mountain biking and you can ride the whole thing other than the hike a bike at the very beginning. Don't be fooled by the difficult start, once through that it is a nice not to steep climb to the top and you are rewarded with an extremely fun down hill.

Dry and loose. Easier tech than I thought given the rating. Reality is that it’s an XC trail with a few short rocky bits. Only real danger is...

 XC trail with a few short rocky sections. Could ride a hardtail if you want, but FS makes a bit more fun.
