Intermediate downhill trail. Nothing exceedingly steep but some alternate rock sections can become very difficult at speed. Some very tight switchbacks that require very good balance at low speeds. Can become very rutted with water drainage ruts almost the whole trail. Very dusty in the summer and can become very muddy during winter. Very fun trail but takes a few runs to get used to it. Hardest feature: optional rock roll into tight switchback. Some small optional jumps towards the end of trail. You can push back up or pedal back up the fire road (takes longer). May encounter some rogue hikers so keep that in mind when going fast.

      There's one spot near the top of one of the jump trails that has a broken log on a drop. It's still rideable, but could use some shovel work.

      The whole park is currently closed due to high risk of fires.

       We rode this yesterday, the trail description is not right. Ranger starts with a sign warning you about gap jumps and then is a very steep down hill with drops, one fairly big one. It mellows after it intersects with Ewok, but definitely not an intermediate trail.

       @As14 Depends on what side you ride. The left side is whats left of a really good jumpline (after the county had its way) which I would rate a black. The right side is the main trail people ride which I would rate a blue.
