I would not recommend this for beginners. There are many rocky steps within the switchbacks at the base of Mesquite Canyon as the trail begins to climb. After reaching the junction with Willow Canyon Trail, Mesquite Canyon Trail becomes much more gentle (deserving a blue rating after this). Climb to the top and descend Willow Canyon (also deserving a blue rating). Get ready for a techy descent on the Mesquite Canyon trail below this. Nice downhill ride for those who have a full suspension bike with ~ 6" + of travel.

Disclaimer

Lower switchbacks are rocky and steep (Hike a Bike in places).

 Well graded climb/descent with some challenging sections linked with smoother sections in the upper reaches.
