Fun xc like trail. Most people ride east to west starting at cougar creek. The climb out of cougar creek is a bit of a lung buster. The climb takes you up behind the Silver Tip golf coarse. There are some creek crossings ups and downs. A couple of steep techy parts but nothing most riders can't handle.
