Most of this trail is pretty easy. A few washes can make it bumpy, but it only gets to be intermediate level as you get high up and start to ride on the sandstone. There you'll get some layered rocks and some loose sections with some punchy climbs. A great addition to the park.

       This seems to be mislabeled per the official State Park map and is actually Upper Commanche.
