Bit of everything on this trail. The difficultly might be one more step up from Black Diamond in places, but in others, it's pretty flat and smooth. Probably best ridden downhill only, as there wouldn't be much time for someone going downhill to stop in time if you're hiking up one of the steep sections. The top is a very loose, free-ridey, steep as anything section. The middle is smooth and flowy, and the bottom is loose sand, tightly banked corners and then you're done. Rumored to have been made with the help of a local bike shop, this is definitely a fun experience.

Disclaimer

Might be more difficult than black diamond in a few places.

      Pretty good, the rut down from the cross is in bad shape, I wouldn't dare ride down it.

      Very muddy, watch out for rocks. Bad traction.

       Be super careful- some of this area is in private property. I got to talk to a manager of the area. Watch or and do your best to avoid the area around the holding pond near the golf course, it is private property. Do not damage any area, property, or anything not belonging to you.
