This trail has some off-camber roots, which makes it one of the more difficult trails to ride, especially when the roots are wet. But it is probably closer to intermediate, as there is really nothing that difficult to ride on it, and it is really not that steep. There are a few spots where the climb is a quick hard effort, but you don't need huge cardio to climb it.

 In no way should this trail be categorized as a black diamond.
