Kinda of steep and narrow, but fun and fast as you drop off the road to connect back up with Yellow fork. Only expert because it can be hard to climb when the dirt is often soft going back up.

 About 19% grade average, according to strava, so if you're going to try riding up, you either have super cardio and a great climbing set-up or you're going to be hiking a bunch of sections. Also watch out for the huge patch of stinging nettle growing over the trail near the bottom.
