      Minor patch of snow at the beginning of the trail under the trees. Shouldn't be there for long now.

       Quite tough uphill sections pedalling-wise in the first part of the trail. In my opinion, unless you are a very capable E-Bike rider, this trail is not really worth messing with.
      The last part of the trail, the true downhill part, is definitely more a black than a blue trail with very steep rooty and rowdy sections with very tight switchbacks. Beware!

       Agree with 'zhmtb' that this isn't really a great bike route, and definitely a black not a blue trail. There are too many sections where you need to push the bike (both up and down) and several turnstiles that you will need to lift the bike over.

       This trail is a hilly ridge trail and so you need to be willing to push the bike from time to time. Overall it is intermediate (blue) but with some technical and difficult (aka "black") part.
      This is definitely not a flow trail but the panorama makes up for it.
