       Great Trail, I just think most people are really tired by this part of the ride and dont enjoy the up and down flow as much as if they were fresh. Trail has good flow, but it is pretty up and down.

       MTN Bike Project says this trail is 11.3 miles of singletrack with 410 ascent and 1373 of descent from what looks like the same stop and start as Trail Forks. That's a big difference from the 1314 ascent and 2295 descent listed here. ???????

       This trail shows as a black diamond. Is it technical or a lot of climbing, or both?

       It seems like this trail allows motos as well (based on signage and the fact that I passed 3 guys on motos on my way down). Maybe some sections are restricted to the user groups that Trailforks indicates?
