 This trail is not a very rideable section for 95% of people. Some serious hike a bike on the East end of it going either way.

 I would care to disagree. I think it is very rideable and have seen tons of people ride the whole thing.

 We can surely disagree, are you sure you are familiar with the spot I'm talking about. The part of the trail I'm talking about is only 1000 ft long. Most of it was very rideable until we got to a particular tree that you had to make a hard right around to go up about 4 foot and a half steps that were about 2ft away from each other. probably 45% grade through ledges and two step ups each about two and a half foot. I don't make these statements very often, in fact, I don't think I've ever said it. I want to see proof that more than 5% of riders can make it.

 Nope, not the trail I'm talking about. At least as far as I can tell and according to TF, you were on the Templeton trail, not Templeton Alt. You rode right by the entry at :47 seconds, it would have been on your left. I agree that what was on the video is very rideable as you showed.
