Excellent ridden in either direction. Climb is steady but can get muddy in sections in the early season. This trail is frequented by motos and you can encounter riders heading in your opposite direction at any time, so it's best to keep a look out ahead. Trail tops out with plenty of options - descending Mahogany or climbing up to Garns Mountain are popular choices.
