Trailforks shows this trail as an uphill climb. You can definitely ride it that direction, but it will be more fun to ride this trail as a loop with Turtle Wall as your climbing trail, then riding Paradise Rim down. The trail is rocky with lots of slickrock broken up by some dirt sections. The downhill has several drops that will challenge intermediates and beginners will want to walk.

      Lower section is washed out a bit. Sand is still soft and damp.

       Best ridden north to south (going down, not up). Climb Beck Hill or Turtle Wall and make it a loop. Fun, fast descent with some decent sized drops and alternate moderate/difficult lines.

       what a fun trail with big drops so be sure to have a bike with some good suspension and brakes. Lots of hikers so be sure to not run anyone over LOL
