Three really technical rock-garden drops right off the bat make this pretty challenging for a blue trail. The switchbacks that follow are also fairly technical and make for a difficult climb. All ride-able, but takes some technical climbing skills. After that the trail becomes a very pleasant meandering route to connect with the rest of Needles.
