This absolutely should be ridden from south to north. There are two distinct sections to this trail - the wrap around the side of a mtn which has a slight climb to mostly flat then the straight away locals have coined Permagrin. Permagrin segment is a series of fun washes skirting the side of the mountain that resemble a roller coaster.

The trail undulates up and down into gullies. It is not easy to get enough speed to boost any of the whoops, but you can send it into the trough at a couple spots. The trail can be ridden fairly slow, but to make it up each little hill and maintain your flow, you need to keep some speed.
