       Not sure who built this trail, but in typical IMBA style 'flow trail' it somehow makes a downhill an uphill. Maybe it was that it wasn't hardpacked in yet or what, but it takes a lot of pedaling to maintain any semblance of 'fun'. The other route via the rocky trail is way more fun.

       Stop riding UP this trail! Up hill traffic is screwing up features ( MOTOS, BIKES, and HIKERS) This is supposed to be a one way down hill traffic only!The sign keep getting removed!
