Monolith Gardens trail is an easy to intermediate loop system with some technical climbs and downhills. June 2011 Foothills Rim trail (a technical intermediate) was connected at 3 location to the Monolith trail adding an additional 10.35 miles to the trail system.

The most popular direction to ride the trail is counter-clockwise but is also fun and more challenging riding clockwise. The trail is fast and flowing with plenty of climbing and fast downhills, elevations are approx 3500 - 3900 ft.
