The easier ride direction is clockwise -- this way you get an easier uphill climb before hitting the steep sections on the way down. Although there are multiple scree fields to cross and some substantial exposure at the top, the trail has a great mix of topology and fantastic views.

       Fun trail. Nice views and an opportunity to open it up and get some speed. Most of the trail is on a fine sort of gravel.

       Tons of sharp rocky sections sandwiched between a bunch of switchbacks...lots of fun especially if you don’t have to get off the bike on any of the switchbacks

      Knee pads and a spare tube kind of trail IMO.

       I don't think I'd call us a black diamond. The clockwise pedal up is very beginner friendly if you're reasonably fit. The trip down does have some challenging elements. Tight switchbacks, loose rock and a bit of exposure. Lots of pedal and handlebar grabbers.
