If you like rocks and chunky trails you will love this one. If you're looking for a smooth flow trail, this is not it. Some roots, lots of rocks, some loose some embedded. It's listed as a black diamond and it can feel that way if you are not taking any breaks but if you take breaks and pace yourself, an intermediate rider with decent bike handling skills can do just fine with walking an occasional feature.

Be sure to pack a rain jacket, I almost always get a little rain when I ride this trail. The weather here can be fickle.
