This trails starts tough and ends tough. Even decent technical skills will hike-a-bike a number of features. In the trail direction on the map, there is a little loop on the right that is tough to follow and tougher to ride. Once through this section, it gets a little easier but not much. Relentless features on this trail. Lower and Upper Powisset Porch are much more reasonable and fun technical trails.
