Fun, flowy, rocky single track typical of the SB South Coast. It can be ridden as either an out-and-back, or as a loop by climbing up the trail to Inspiration Point and coming down the fire road to the upper trail head. There are some very difficult tech sections, but they can be easily walked. This trail is heavily used by hikers, please always ride with a bell.

      Down tree about mid way, inside cut line developing to get around it. Wonderful trail, kudos to the builders.

       Overall I agree with the blue rating, but first-time riders should be aware that there are multiple black sections that you will probably walk if you are not an experienced rider.
