North Canyon is a fun but challenging climb and descent. This side of Cave Peak doesn't see nearly as much traffic as Mueller Park so this might be a better option if you're wanting some speed and not wanting to stop for hiking traffic. The ride is pretty well covered with trees and is mainly hardpack with some rough rocky sections. The lower part of North Canyon is a bit of a jeep trail so watch for mud and potholes.

Tacky dirt in the upper sections. Solid time to ride

Few wet parts and some mud, but nothing that will keep you from making to the top.

 Not even close to a "Black Diamond" trail. Straight up intermediate, XC descent.

That said, I thought it was pretty fun, and one can squeeek some speed out of it. The double track is steep and off camber. Let go of the brakes and it will get your attention.

 This is partly a fun downhill single track and partly a terriblr, rough, Jeep road. Not worth it. Take Mueller Park downhill and put up with the occasional hikers.
