Upper section (Cherry Spring trail to Cowboy Slickrock) is a fun rip with a great tech section beside a creek. Below that it doesn't seem to get a lot of action - primitive, soft, and often difficult to follow. Uphill, it's not the worst way to reach the top of Golder, if you're patient with routefinding. Downhill, don't bother with the lower section, take Cowboy Slickrock and don't look back.
