Trail grades are generally moderate except where the trail climbs up to the ridgetop. There will be some hike a bike if riding from south to north. An out and back ride is also possible from the south trailhead. Lots of dead trees along this trail. May be lots of downfall if not cleared recently.

      Trail is non-existent at the top. Lots of downed trees in the upper reaches of the creek. Still worth riding though.
