 Don't be deceived by the intermediate difficulty rating. The lower portion of the trail from Shingletown Gap to Bald Knob Ridge / Jaunt is "Most Difficult" with one section being a practically unrideable rock garden. One of the last trails in Rothrock to dry out after a rain and thaw out at the end of the winter, which keeps the rocks slick.
