Holbert is a very technical steep trail full of boulders/drops/switchbacks and is not for the faint of heart. It is OTB central for inexperienced riders (OTB=Over The Bars crash)

       Trail starts out semi tame and then becomes a chunkfest the whole way down. This trail is not for everyone, if you are a huge fan of flow you will probably not like this trail. If you like chunk and the challenges of picking your lines and letting off the brakes you will like it. I liked that most of the rocks were all embedded which was nice, appose to just loose baby head rocks. I was a fan of this challenge and trying to find the lines of least resistance. I would ride the National trail first, if you can ride all that trail pretty easy then I would try this one. This trails a big step up in difficulty compared to National. Also, there were lots of hikers on the trail when I rode it, its always a good idea to be friendly and courteous to them. Riding up this would most likely be a hike a bike most of the way. I posted a video of the trail in the VIDEO tab to give ya an idea.
