Trail can be ridden in either direction. I prefer clockwise because the descent is longer. Counterclockwise the descent is shorter but steeper in spots. Ride to the top and then down and link it directly into Ridegeline (with some double track). Blast down Ridgeline all the way to Lake Imaging Road. This route is worth riding MANY times.
