The trail offers a little of everything that you will find on trails in Michigan: tight twisty singletrack through heavily wooded areas, open double-track, sweet flowing singletrack with switchbacks, some interesting technical areas (log piles, bridges, rock garden, downhill with drop-offs) and a VERY fast downhill we call Big Bertha. Of course you could always ride it backwards and call it a BIG KICK BUTT climb The trail is considered moderately technical. There are not many big climbs, but there are three short steep ones with switchbacks in a row. Also there are some off camber climbs as well as on the descents.
