This trail is a beast. It's nothing but sketchy tech where wheel placement and speed are of the utmost importance. It's a popular hiking trail due to its proximity to the trailhead parking lot. Some portions are rideable going up but it's mostly hike-a-bike. Coming down will take some real skill as well, not to mention, having to navigate around the hikers the closer you get to the bottom, making it that much more difficult.
