This trail has a nice amount of elevation change, gorgeous views, awesome exposure in some spots and not much tech. Unfortunately, it's got a pile of tight switchbacks which makes it anything but a fun downhill blast. Switchback after switchback make it slow going and endo turns are a necessity unless you want to put a foot down and manually turn your bike around each one.

 Very hard trail going both up and down with super narrow and tight switch backs i would not recommend for bikers unless you are an expert or pro
