Great trail but a little chunky for my hard-tail -- no real steep or difficult parts on the trail but there are lots of rocks -- the terrain here...

It rained the other night, and there are still a handful of small muddish spots. However they are easy to ride around and shouldn't prevent you...

 This is a fun trail mainly for the views more than anything. It's not a smooth trail, I would say 90% of it has baked in rocks, but again, I think this trail is more for the views than the actual ride.

 Pretty gnarly. Lots of rock gardens and small ledges (6-12"). Fun and doable, just know what you're getting into. This is not a leisurely jaunt through the woods. But fantastic views!
